Dr. Goulding joined the German faculty in 1998. She has two broad areas of specialization: 18th- and 19th-century German literature and German pedagogy. Within her first area of interest, German literature, Dr. Goulding has written articles on 18th-century aesthetics and has presented numerous papers on various aspects of German literature at conferences of national and international professional organizations, including the German Studies Association (GSA) and the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS), and the International Nineteenth-Century Studies Society (INCS). She has also published translations in the tradition of German feminist philosophy and is a book reviewer for journals German Studies Review, Colloquia Germanica, the Lessing Yearbook, the Women in German Newsletter, Eighteenth-Century Women, and The Modern Language Journal. She is currently producing a book-length manuscript on the aesthetics of German wit.
In her second area of interest, German pedagogy, Dr. Goulding is co-author of the first-year textbook Alles klar (2004), along with the accompanying supplements. Her long interest in computer applications for Foreign Language learning led her to publish a role-playing murder mystery for intermediate German called Mord in Mainz. As an early pioneer in the use of the Web in foreign language instruction, she co-authored the Internet workbook Surf’s Up! Website Workbook for Basic German (1996-99) and collaborated on producing an interactive website to accompany the first-year German textbook Kontakte. She has also published on teaching and the use of computer technology in the foreign language classroom and has presented papers and given workshops in various venues, including the annual conferences of the American Association of Teachers of German (AATG) and the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium (CALICO). She is currently collaborating on a second-year textbook for Prentice Hall called Immer weiter.
