Alex Lambrow earned his A.B. in Comparative Literature from Dartmouth in 2010. His honors thesis, “Weimar Objectivity and the State of Exception” (awarded the Oxenhandler Prize in Comparative Literature), investigated exceptional political states and their biopolitical implications in the late-Weimar work of Bertolt Brecht and Ernst Jünger. After college, Alex spent a year on a Fulbright Fellowship in Germany, where he lived in Dresden and taught English at a Gymnasium. In 2013, Alex received his M.A. in Germanic Languages and Literatures from the University of California, Berkeley, where he worked mostly on topics concerning the Frankfurt School, film and cultural memory. His primary research interests include modernist literature, interwar film, and political and legal theory.
