Dr. Claudia Görg

Abteilung Banerjee
I am one of the instructors and academic advisors of the American Studies Department at Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz. My current teaching load includes language courses as well as literature courses. The focus of my literature classes is on Jewish American literature, ethnic literature, Realism, Southern literature, and the questions of identity and cultural memory in an increasingly global world. I am committed to getting students involved in class discussions since learning cannot be a merely passive reception of information.


My teaching areas are:

  • Jewish American Literature
  • Ethnic Literature
  • Realism
  • 19th-Century and 20th-Century Novels
  • Southern Literature

Departmental Functions

  • Student Advisor/Academic Advisor
  • Examiner for the English Language Certificate (DAAD, JGU Language certificate, Humboldt Foundation, Fulbright, BVMD and Deutscher Famulantenservice for medical students)

Experience Abroad

  • 1983-1984 San Diego State University (DAAD Scholarship)
  • 1987 – January 1988 English Conversation Courses in Katusyama-shi, Fukui-ken, Japan
  • 1989-1990 Research Assistant York University, Toronto, Canada
  • 1994-1995 Lecturer at UC Davis, Davis, California
