Summer 2017 UW Germanics Newsletter


Dear Friends of Germanics and Alums:


Greetings from the UW campus. In this summer edition of our Newsletter we feature the accomplishments of our students and their work in our courses.  I hope you will enjoy their creative projects as much as did the student performers and their instructors. 

We applaud the excellence of the graduating class of 2017 and extend our well-wishes to all of its members. We congratulate our distinguished senior colleague and Lockwood Professor in the Humanities, Rick Gray, upon his well-deserved retirement, and hope that many happy bike rides will lead him right back from Ballard to Denny Hall. And we say Goodbye to our Distinguished Max Kade Professor this spring, Moritz Baβler from Münster, and our other visitors, whose presence we greatly enjoyed.

Thank you for your support and have a lovely summer.


Brigitte Prutti
Professor and Chair
