Spring 2016 UW Germanics Newsletter

Dear Friends of Germanics and Alums,

Spring greetings from Condon Hall. The achievements and adventures of our students and alums take center stage in this March Newsletter issue. We are proud to feature some interesting new courses and upcoming cross-disciplinary lectures in the fall, and we extend our warmest congratulations to Japhet Johnstone on the successful defense of a stellar dissertation in December last year, and to our PhD candidate, Olivia Albiero, on her success in securing a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in German and Italian at San Francisco State University in SF. The lovely Japanese cherry trees in the Quad are beginning to bloom, and we wish you such calm and fresh spring mornings as Virginia Woolf’s Mrs. Dalloway used to enjoy. We also look forward to hearing from our friends and alums.

Happy Kirschblütenzeit, everyone!

Brigitte Prutti
Professor of German, Chair
