Visiting Professors

Besides the regular semester-long visits by our three “Permanent Visiting Professors” –Inka Mülder-Bach (LMU-München), Joseph Vogl (Humboldt Universität, Berlin) and Sigrid Weigel (Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung, Berlin)—the German Department also has a longstanding tradition of bringing in outstanding international scholars from abroad for a semester as visiting faculty. Besides the more recent visiting faculty listed below, over the years this distinguished group has included Aleida Assmann (Konstanz), Wilfried Barner (Göttingen), Dorrit Cohn (Harvard), Peter Fenves (Northwestern), Jochen Hörisch (Mannheim), Alice Kuzniar (University of North Carolina), Eberhard Lämmert (Berlin), Winfried Menninghaus (Berlin), Michael Steinberg (Brown), Liliane Weissberg (University of Pennsylvania) and David Wellbery (Chicago).
