Ann Sasala ’15 brings home off-campus research through the International Bridge Course

A double major in German Studies and Spanish and Latin American Studies, minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and active member of Gettysburg’s ALLies organization, Ann Sasala ’15 has both a personal and academic interest in pushing the boundaries of gender binaries and identity.

The second IBC Scholar from German Studies, Sasala is currently conducting archival research in the Staatsbibliothek (Germany’s state library) and at the Schwules Museum (Gay Museum) in Berlin, and has visited the original sites of Berlin’s famously gender non-conforming night club, the Eldorado.  

Through the IBC program, students pursue three-semester long projects in the arts, humanities, and humanistic social sciences under the guidance of a faculty mentor. In the first semester, the IBC Scholars develop a project, create a bibliography of texts, and conduct pre-departure research on campus. While abroad the following semester, the Scholars conduct international research in archives, communities, and out in the field—communicating regularly with their mentors throughout the process. When they return to campus, their mentors guide them in a culminating independent research project or Senior Capstone that showcases their findings.

Mellon Foundation as part of a larger student research proposal; one year later, Gettysburg’s first cohort of IBC Scholars went abroad.
