Erika Berroth

Notable Achievements

Associate Professor of German Erika Berroth organized a panel at the 43rd Annual Coalition of Women in German conference at Sewanee University of the South, in Sewanne, Tennessee, Oct. 1821. The panel, titled “The Forest Unseen: Feminism and Visibility of Connections in Bodies, Nature, Science, and Violence,” was inspired by Sewanee biology professor David G. Haskell’s book The Forest Unseen: A Year’s Work in Nature (2012). Panelists shared their feminist work in the environmental humanities in the field of German studies.
