To Justin Mohler, who received the Chester William Fritz Scholarship for the 2017/18 academic year. This scholarship will help support work on the first chapter of his dissertation, which explores changing conceptions of the animal-human divide in German Romanticism.


To Verena Kick, who received the “David Detjen Research Grant” from the American Friends of Marbach (AFM) for summer 2017. This research grant enables Verena to conduct research on Kurt Tucholsky’s work at the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach for several weeks this summer.

Verena also received the “Kurt Tucholsky Stipendium für Literatur und Publizistik” from the Kurt Tucholsky Stiftung, which will enable her to continue her research at the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach in the spring and summer of 2018. Her research findings will be incorporated in her dissertation chapter on Tucholsky’s Deutschland, Deutschland über Alles (1929).
