She holds a Ph.D. in Drama from the University of Washington, Seattle. She has received several awards and grants, among them a Humboldt Fellowship, which she used to pursue research in Berlin during the 2001-2002 academic year, and a Senior Faculty Research Award (Fall 2008), which allowed her to complete her most recent book. Professor Sieg is the author of three books on twentieth-century German theater and performance, which focus on the politics of nationality, race/ethnicity, and gender/sexuality. Her recent research looks at the documentary work performed at an immigrant theater in Berlin. Since 2009, she has been a member of an international, interdisciplinary research group examining the Eurovision Song Contest as a site where the "New Europe" is imagined and performed, and becomes available for identification and refashioning.
