Nicole Poppenhagen explores Chinese American family narratives from a transpacific perspective. She examines how these narratives resist past and present discourses on the Pacific as space of (neo)imperialist desires. In particular, she is interested in how the interactions between individuals and families as well as the Chinese diaspora and other communities in and beyond the Pacific are represented, turning the Pacific into a region fundamentally shaped by complex networks of transpacific relationships across time and space.

Nicole Poppenhagen holds a teaching and research appointment at Europa-Universität Flensburg, Germany. Before joining the Department of English and American Studies in Flensburg, she worked as university assistant at the Department of English and American Studies in Vienna, Austria, and for the American Studies division at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany, where she also pursued her research interests in the field of transnational life writing. She was a teaching fellow at Bowdoin College, Maine, U.S.A. in 2007/08 and completed her studies in Mainz with a thesis on concepts of identity in Chinese American women’s writing in 2011. In her dissertation, she explores Chinese American family narratives from a transpacific perspective. She served as guest editor for the 2015 issue of the peer-reviewed journal Current Objectives of Postgraduate American Studies and co-edited the volume Transgressive Television: Politics and Crime in 21st-Century American TV Series (with Birgit Däwes and Alexandra Ganser; Winter Verlag). Currently, she is preparing a special issue of Atlantic Studies: Global Currents on the connections between Atlantic and (Trans)PacificStudies with her colleague Jens Temmen (Potsdam). Nicole Poppenhagen was awarded a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD, PROMOS) to attend Beijing Language and Culture University, China, in March 2013, and she is the recipient of the 2016 United States Ambassador’s Grant for Young Researchers in American Studies. From February to May 2017, she is a visiting scholar at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.
