She received a BA in political and social thought from the University of Virginia and her MA and PhD in history from the University of California, Berkeley. A specialist on modern Germany, with a particular interest in late twentieth-century cultural practices, Allen has also traced how Germany’s recent grassroots commemorative practices became a model for international communities as diverse as those in Moscow and Buenos Aires, as citizens around the world have worked to create decentralized public monuments to the victims of mass atrocities.
