Emory University, a top-ranked private institution recognized internationally for its outstanding liberal arts colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the world's leading health care systems, is located on a beautiful campus in Atlanta, Georgia's historic Druid Hills neighborhood.
The German Studies Department at Emory University is a team of teacher-scholars that has as its threefold mission (a) the interdisciplinary research of cultural phenomena in the German- and Yiddish-speaking worlds, (b) the development of students’ foreign cultural literacy through an articulated undergraduate curriculum, and (c) the fostering of connections between the department and other disciplines both at Emory University and beyond.
The Research Team
The "100 Days Project" research team consisted of 25 Emory German Studies students. These students had diverse backgrounds, varying levels of involvement in the German department, and hold a deep interest in the meaning of this project. The team had a mixture of students getting credit for their work and volunteers for this directed study. The project leader was Hiram Maxim, Professor of German Studies and Linguistics at Emory.
