Hermann Kappelhoff gained his PhD in 1993 for his study on the poetology of Weimar auteur cinema. His professorial thesis on melodrama in cinema as a paradigm for a theory of artificial emotionality was published in 2001. Since 2003 he is Professor of Film Studies at the Free University of Berlin and chaired the interdisciplinary research center “Languages of Emotion”. As of late, he is supervising the project “Migrantenmelodramen und Einwanderungskomödien“ on media formats of German-Turkish senses of community, which is part of the newly established Collaborative Research Centre 1171: “Affective Societies - Dynamics of social coexistence in mobile worlds.”
