Theoren is a first-year Ph.D. student in Modern European and Women's and Gender history. He received his B.A. in History and Music from the Macaulay Honors College at CUNY Hunter College in 2019. In his undergraduate thesis on the German Revolution of 1918/19, he argued that radicals and moderates practiced irreconcilable forms of masculinity which directly encouraged the fragmentation of Germany's political left. During his time at Rutgers, he will be researching normative masculinities in Weimar Germany and its oppositional relationships to femininity, sexuality, and racial others.
