Dr. Doris Bachmann-Medick: Max Kade Guest Professor, Fall 2016

We look forward to welcoming Dr. Bachmann-Medick to the German Department for the Fall 2016 Semester.

She offers two courses, the advanced undergraduate class on “Die Alpen: Image und Realität” (The Alps: Image and Reality) and the graduate seminar on “Culture Turns: Theorien und Literaturbeispiele.” 

Prof. Doris Bachmann-Medick, Permanent Senior Research Fellow at the International Graduate Centre for the Study of Culture (GCSC), University of Giessen, joins the Department as Max-Kade Scholar-in-Residence for the fall semester 2016. She teaches and writes on recent disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transnational developments in the Study of Culture. Her 2006 book Cultural Turns. Neuorientierungen in den Kulturwissenschaften. Reinbek: Rowohlt has become indispensable for students and scholars of literary and cultural studies and is now in its 5th edition (a revised and translated edition appeared earlier this year with De Gruyter: Cultural Turns. New Orientations in the Study of Culture).

She also will give a public lecture on Thursday, October 6, 2016. This lecture will take place in ICC 462 from 5:00-6:30 pm.
