Dr. Agnes Cser teaches a variety of German courses at Bradley University, from elementary German to content-based German literature and civilization courses. In addition to teaching experience at all levels of German at different American universities, she spent an academic year at the Herder Institute, University of Leipzig in 2013/14. Her participation in German literature seminars and her co-teaching experience in Phonetics and Foreign Language Pedagogy in the German university system reshaped her approaches to teaching German language and literature and reframed her views on contemporary Germany.


Dr. Cser’s dissertation was on how the issue of education defined Friedrich Schiller’s poetic calling and his emerging professional identity as a dramaturge (1759-1805), based, in part, on research she carried out in Leipzig. Her research focuses on the artistic expression of Bildung in German literature, with primary studies in German Drama, the interrelationship of German literature and music, as well as linguistic approaches to literature; she gave lectures on these topics at several national conferences and international colloquia.
