Congratulations to Professor Weitzman

Professor Weitzman's book Irony’s Antics: Walser, Kafka, Roth and the German Comic Tradition (Northwestern University Press, 2015) explores the crucial but largely neglected role of the comic and its relation to irony in German-language literature through an examination of the works of Robert Walser, Franz Kafka, and Joseph Roth, and theories of comedy in Freud, Hegel, and others.

Congratulations to Professor Parkinson

Professor Parkinson's book An Emotional State: The Politics of Emotion in Postwar West German Culture (University of Michigan Press, 2015) seeks to dismantle the prevailing notion that Germany, in the period following the Second World War, exhibited an “inability to mourn,” arguing that in fact the period experienced a surge of affect.
