Elisabeth Piller is an Assistant Professor of Transatlantic and North American History at the University of Freiburg in Germany. She is particularly interested in the human cost of, and transnational responses to, war and violence in Europe’s Age of World (and Civil) War, c. 1914-1949.

She is currently completing her second book, tentatively titled US Humanitarians, Postwar Europe and the Making of the American Century, which examines US humanitarian aid to war-torn Europe in the 1940s and the resulting renegotiation of transatlantic relations.

A collection on Humanitarianism and the Greater War, 1914-1924, co-edited with Neville Wylie, is also forthcoming (with Manchester University Press).
