I am a political scientist, author and public intellectual. I studied history, philosophy, cultural studies, and political science at the Universities of Tuebingen, Bremen, Berlin (Germany), and Innsbruck (Austria).
My main fields of research are anti-Semitism, German history and German society, criticism of ideology (like anti-Americanism, anti-Westernism, anti-Semitism, Islamic Jihad), right-wing extremism, nationalism, the Holocaust and Shoah remembrance.
My first invitation as a speaker at an international conference was in 2002, Hebrew University (SICSA). Since then I was invited to speak at international conferences in the US, Germany, Latvia, Israel, Czech Republic.
