A warm welcome to Professor Jan Behrs

Jan Behrs, our new DAAD Visiting Associate Professor of German, has arrived safely in the United States from Kiel, Germany. Meet Professor Behrs in the department or during Kaffee Stunde, or even better, sign up for his 300-level literature class this fall on World War I in German Literature, Art, and Music.


The department would like to congratulate Professor Völkner and Professor Parkinson to their well-deserved promotions. Katrin Völkner was promoted to Associate Professor of Instruction and Anna Parkinson was promoted to tenured Associate Professor.
