Reika Ebert (PhD 2000) became Chair of the Department of Modern Languages at Murray State University in Kentucky in 2012. She frequently directs study abroad programs in Austria or Munich during the summer. Earlier this June she attended the Modern Language Association's ADE-ADFL Summer Seminar West here in Seattle. The meeting was hosted by the Simpson Center for the Humanities at the University of Washington. Reika enjoyed being back at the beautiful UW campus for the sessions held at the Husky Union Building.
