Adam

Adam Rashkoff  ’13, a double major in German Studies and the College of Letters, spent 2013/14 teaching English at two secondary schools in Vorarlberg, Austria, under the auspices of USTA-Austria, a program administered by the Fulbright Commission and funded by the Austrian Federal Ministry for Education, the Arts and Culture. He is currently enrolled in two MA programs at Vienna University: Deutsche Philologie (German Studies) and Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft (Comparative Literature). Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft at the University of Vienna is a literary studies degree that emphasizes working with texts from the perspective of multiple languages, nationalities, cultures, and artistic traditions. Deutsche Philologie is, to quote Adam, “similar to German Studies at Wesleyan, but the program does incorporate some study of German linguistics and language history. For example, in the coming semester I’ll be taking courses in Middle High German and in contemporary grammar. These will help me to fulfill the MA’s first stage, which consists of a mandatory quota of courses in ‘Linguistics’ along with quotas in ‘Older German Literature’ and ‘Newer German Literature.’ In subsequent stages of the MA, (…) I’ll have the opportunity to focus on one of these three ‘fields’ and to develop a degree of scholarly competence in it with the ultimate goal of gaining enough context to write a masters thesis. While I don’t yet have a thesis topic, I am broadly interested in literary modernism, critical theory, and in writers who engage in social critique through innovative aesthetics, interests that I developed as a Wesleyan German Studies major.”

Littera borealisKrishna Winston’s essay, “Was zu Günter Grass in der englischsprachigen Welt gesagt werden muss,” appeared in October 2014 in Volume 14 of Littera borealis, Edition zur zeitgenössischen Literatur im Norden, published by the Literaturhaus Schleswig-Holstein in Kiel. The Grass volume features an interview with the writer, conducted by the director of the Günter Grass House in Lübeck, and essays by a number of Grass’s translators. It was presented to Grass on the occasion of his 87th birthday.

photoOn October 3, 2014, professors Lutz Hüwel and Krishna Winston were guests of Germany’s Consul General in Boston, Herr Rolf Schuette, for a celebration of Germany’s Day of Unity at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, Connecticut. The reception highlighted the state of Baden-Württemberg, with which Connecticut maintains an official exchange focused on education and business. Since 1998, 50 Wesleyan graduates and graduate students have spent a year in Germany under the auspices of the exchange, and numerous students from Germany have come to Wesleyan. At an October 2 dinner at the Avon-Old Farms Inn, both professors were also present when the head of the visiting delegation from Baden-Württemberg, Minister of Higher Education, Research, and the Arts Theresia Bauer, presented a distinguished-service medal to Renate Seitz, who administers the B-W Exchange for the Connecticut Office of Higher Education.
