News from our Graduate Students: Inga Schwemin

Hello everyone,

I'm Inga, this year's Kade Fellow. Last year, during the pre-vaccine part of the pandemic, I came to Seattle as a visiting graduate. Even though the city and campus were running on a completely different rhythm, I had an amazing time, met great people, and fell in love with the area. This time I'm returning as a full member of the graduate program, pursuing a joint degree between the University of Washington and the University of Münster. Both German departments as well as UW’s School of Drama support me in my research about forgotten and heavily underrepresented plays by female dramatists of the 18th century.

I am excited to be a part of the UW community again. Watching German movies or meeting for Kaffeestunde with Doughnuts just hits differently in person. Regarding off-campus adventures, I can't wait to explore Seattle with open galleries, museums, restaurants, and bars as well as the mountains, forests, islands, and waters of Washington and beyond.
