A native of Vienna, Austria, Sarah Painitz has taught at Wabash College and Butler University since completing her Ph.D. in Germanic Languages and Literatures at the University of Virginia. Her primary teaching and research interests are twentieth-century German literature and culture, Austrian literature and culture, modernism, gender studies, narrative theory, and language acquisition and pedagogy. Her publications include essays on the changing image of women in Austria during the First Republic (1919-1934), Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Veza Canetti, Mela Hartwig, and Ingeborg Bachmann. Her current research focuses on the continuous engagement with trauma through the writing, translating, and rewriting of texts. Sarah spent the 2017/18 academic year on a fellowship in Vienna, Austria, where she pursued archival research on Robert Neumann and Ruth Klüger. The results of this work were published in Colloquia Germanica and Forum for Modern Language Studies in summer 2019.

At Butler, Sarah runs the German program, advises the German Klub, and teaches in all areas of German language literature and culture, including film, children’s literature, fairy tales, and contemporary culture, media, and politics. Sarah also participates in the IGeL School, a parent-run German language school for children aged 0 to 12.
