Faculty Research and Sponsored Programs

David Gerlach, History Department

David Gerlach, Associate Professor, History, has been awarded an American Council on Germany 2016-2017 Dr. Richard M. Hunt Fellowship for the Study of German Politics, Society, and Culture. This fellowship will provide David with the opportunity to travel to Germany next summer in order to conduct research on a new project. His new project explores how property theft and restitution shaped experiences and memories of Central Europeans during and after World War II. He recently completed an article that examines what this lost property meant to Jews who survived the Holocaust. It will appear in the journal Jewish Culture and History in 2017.
