Scholarship and Research Topics

Statues holding books from German authors

Faculty members in the German Department are engaged in a range of sustained individual and collaborative research projects. Often these address cross-disciplinary issues, such as notions of belonging and Heimat, gender and performance, digital humanities and pedagogy, cultural negotiations of economic concepts, decolonizing the museum, and multiple literacies.

A special feature of that work is not only its high level of internal collaboration among faculty members, but also the ways in which it includes undergraduate and graduate students. Both faculty members and graduate students have received prestigious research awards for their outstanding contributions to the field.
