Dear Friend of German Studies,

We are excited to be back in-person for a strong kick-off to a new academic year
 with full classes, impactful research projects, inspiring students, and fantastic friends and connections in the community. Our signature events this fall include a day at the opera, a seminar for the entire department, and an indigenous walking tour of the UW campus! 

Support for Friends of German Studies is crucial and allows us to:

  • Engage important speakers and scholars for public events.
  • Provide research support for our graduate students.
  • Subsidize tuition for our summer programs.
  • Fund student and faculty participation in conferences.

Our most recent newsletter featured updates on faculty and student activities and the impact of private support. Please check us out periodically on our new web presence, especially the news feature.

The experiences and opportunities made possible by donors like you play a critical role in our students’ education. We are deeply grateful to our generous alumni and friends. On behalf of our students, I thank you for your support!

The faculty joins me in wishing you a very pleasant holiday season,

Ellwood Wiggins
Associate Professor of German Studies 
Interim Chair (fall 2022)
