Daniel Carranza graduated from Reed College in 2012 with a B.A. in German Literature. In 2011, he studied abroad in Tübingen. His senior thesis was on the ethical project of Theodor W. Adorno’s Minima Moralia and explored the role played by aphoristic form in that project. He then spent the 2012-2013 academic year in Konstanz on a Fulbright English teaching assistantship. His current interests include the filiations between German poetry and Idealist philosophy in the long eighteenth-century, theories of rhythm, and the history of philology and hermeneutics, in particular the reception history of Hölderlin’s poetry.
