Anita Lukic

  • Visiting Assistant Professor
  • Study Abroad and Internship Coordinator

Anita Lukic arrived at the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. She teaches both language and content courses, and serves as the study abroad and internship coordinator.  

Her research interests include German literature and culture from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century; South Slavic fiction in German-speaking countries; narratology; and critical theory.

Currently, she is examining the return of the anti-fascist legacy in German-speaking countries through a genealogical study of its early manifestations in the Weimar Republic, its later fictionalizations in the GDR, and comeback in the age of globalization. The goal of her project is to identify news forms of fascism through the study of current anti-fascist movements.
