Journal Issue


Alexander Stephan came to The Ohio State University in 2000 as the first Ohio Eminent Scholar in the Humanities. He was professor of German in the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures and senior fellow at the Mershon Center. Stephan's research on the Weimar Republic, anti-fascist exile, and the postwar period did much to establish German Studies as it exists today both here and abroad. During his years at Ohio State, Stephan's attention to transatlantic studies, European-American relations, and international responses to American culture and politics greatly enriched the interdisciplinary conversations of the Mershon Center and the College of Humanities. We remember Alex with talks by two of his friends and colleagues whose interdisciplinary breadth mirrors his own. There will be an opportunity during the tribute for those who wish to speak briefly about Alex. A reception will follow.
