Dr. Kyle Frackman, Assistant Professor of Germanic Studies in the Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Dr. Frackman teaches in both German and Scandinavian subject areas, and his research interests include 18th- to 20th-century German literature, the history and culture of the former East Germany, and German and Nordic film.

Dr. Ilinca Iurascu, Assistant Professor of Germanic Studies, Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies at the University of British Columbia. After completing her PhD at University of Pennsylvania, she joined the Graduiertenkolleg Mediale Historiographienat the Bauhaus-University Weimar, where she had the chance to work on two of her favourite subjects: letters and early cinema. Since coming to UBC, she has launched – together with Gaby Pailer and Franziska Schößler – an international research and publication project on the media histories of the Girls in Uniform material. She is currently preparing a co-edited volume on postal networks and epistolary film and a book-length study exploring the transformation of the concept of banality in 19th-century German culture.
