Ron Sadan is a fourth-year graduate student who works on the print culture of the Weimar Republic with a focus on the contested status of the book as the primary media format of literature in German modernism. He is especially interested why the book became a problem for artists and writers of literary modernism and the philological challenges raised by non-book forms of ambitious writing, such as the literary manuscript and the feuilleton. A graduate of St. John’s College in Annapolis, he studied with a grant from the DAAD at the Free University-Berlin before coming to Princeton in fall 2015. Currently, he researches toward his dissertation as a Fulbright fellow at the Humboldt University in Berlin.
