Professor Fojtik received her Ph.D. in Modern Europe and Women's and Gender History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2013. Before coming to SXU, she taught at Carroll University in Waukesha, WI and at DePaul University. Her work has focused most recently on how postwar deprivation forced Germans to reconsider their place in a Cold War international order. Specifically, she is interested in the way that tensions between urban consumers and rural producers, as well as a loss of agricultural self-sufficiency, led to a reconsideration of Heimat and a reconstitution of national identities.
She is interested in using the tools of the digital humanities to deepen historical understanding and promote public access to historical research. She is coordinator of social science secondary education and the digital humanities minor.
In addition to her responsibilities at SXU, she serves as the new books editor
