Sara E. Jackson's current book project, "The Problem of the Actress in Modern German Theater and Thought," focuses on the actress as a key figure in a complex of intersecting discourses concerned with gender and subjectivity in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Her research is interdisciplinary, incorporating a diverse range of published and archival materials including literature, philosophical texts, sexological and criminological works, and theoretical treatises on the actress, as well as letter exchanges, autobiography, turn-of-the-century journal articles, and stage performances. Her dissertation, "Staging the Deadlier Sex: Dangerous Women in German Text and Performance at the Fin de Si├Ęcle," was awarded a 2013 Proquest Distinguished Dissertation Award at the University of Michigan as well as the Women in German Dissertation Prize for 2014. She is also co-founder of GTPR: German Theater and Performance Research.
