Since Nils Roemer's arrival at UT Dallas in the fall of 2006, he has made it his goal to introduce himself to the various supporters and participants of the Holocaust and Jewish Studies Program at UT Dallas. During the last year, he met with members of the board, the Goethe Center, the Dallas Psychological Society, and local Jewish communities. Dr. Roemer has contributed to the continual fund raising activities of the Holocaust Studies Program at UT Dallas, including the endowments of The Jaffe Holocaust Library Funds; The Burton C. Einspruch Annual Holocaust Lecture Series; The Leah and Paul Lewis Chair; and the new Ackerman Challenge Fund; and a new endowment for a chair. 


During the last few years, Dr. Roemer presented papers at various international conferences, organized several conferences, and published numerous books and articles. He is the author of Jewish Scholarship and Culture in Nineteenth-Century Germany: Between History and Faith (2005); he is also co-editor of German History from the Margins(2006); Jüdische Geschichte lesen: Texte der jüdischen Geschichts schreibung im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert (2003). His forthcoming publications include German City, Jewish Memory: The Story of Worms (2010) and several co-edited volumes. His special fields of interest are Jewish cultural and intellectual history, addressing questions of popular culture and cultural memory.
