Spring 2018 UW Germanics Newsletter

 Dear Friends of Germanics and Alums,

I hope you will enjoy this Spring 2018 edition of our Newsletter featuring the voices and accomplishments of our remarkable students from beginning language learners to advanced PhD candidates, along with new faculty research and cross-disciplinary initiatives as well as other extra-curricular programs and events and the timely new courses we are offering this spring.  Winter quarter is coming to a close and we look forward to the festive Kirschblütenzeit here on campus. Our Spring-in-Vienna students will soon be listening to Frühlingsstimmen in the parks of Vienna and their program director, Dr. Kye Terrasi, will join them there for their study abroad adventure in May. We are most grateful to the Max Kade Foundation for the generous travel support. It allows many more students to participate in the program than would otherwise be possible. Spring greetings and best wishes from Denny Hall.
