Academic PositionGraduate Student
Originally from Hamburg (Germany), Ulrike first studied Music at Girton College, Cambridge (UK), where she completed a B.A. in Music (2005) and an M.Phil. in Musicology (2006). Her master's thesis examined the reception of Brahms in Germany during the Third Reich. Since her arrival at Berkeley, Ulrike's work has focused increasingly on early twentieth-century musical issues. Having spent 2010 in Vienna for archival research (which was generously supported by the Austrian Exchange Service (ÖAD)), she is currently writing her Ph.D. thesis about the social, political, and cultural impact of operetta in twentieth-century Vienna. Ulrike is a doctoral fellow of the Gerda Henkel Foundation.
