Fall 2014 UW Germanics Newsletter

Dear Friends of Germanics and Alums,

As fall quarter is drawing to a close, I would like to share with you the accomplishments and endeavors of our students, faculty, and alums, and the story of a wonderful gift. Attached please find the link to the fall 2014 UW Germanics Newsletter. You’ll find information about our innovative Humanities courses for students across the disciplines and other fall quarter news. I hope that some of it will be of interest to you. We always welcome more alumni news.

“Be boundless” is the new motto of the University of Washington. We have creatively adopted it and put it to play:  Dare to be boundless? Learn German if you DER. Yes you can. For more examples on how to be daring and bold and for staying in touch with us throughout the year, please see our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  Thanks to the zest and drive of our new colleague, Dr. Kye Terrasi, and the artistic staff at the Germanics main office, Misha Neininger, our undergraduate program specialist, and Stephanie Welch, our esteemed administrator, we have a lively social media presence and great visual design to go hand in hand with an academic program of exceptional strength. Yes we DER.

Happy Holidays and best wishes for the year ahead.

Brigitte Prutti
Professor of German and Chair
