About the Author: Dr. Philipp Kneis

Me, some time ago, with cat

I have studied American Studies and History at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the University of Potsdam. I have organized numerous student-based conferences and transatlantic students symposia. My main research interests are American and European politics and history, American film and television, Native American Studies, aging and memetics.

My interests in poetry, photography and music are reflected on philjohn.com, which is a continuous archive of my work, mostly uncut. For a list of academic projects, see pjkx.com.

Should you have any questions or comments regarding that, or just want to contact me, please send feedback.
