Dear Members and Friends of the GSA,
The German Studies Association is pleased to announce that Professor Sabine Hake has agreed to serve as editor of the German Studies Review beginning with the February 2012 issue.
Professor Hake is a truly distinguished scholar of German Studies with wide-ranging, interdisciplinary interests and a deservedly international reputation. She will bring exceptional credentials to her new task. She is Texas Chair of German Literature and Culture in the Department of Germanic Studies at the University of Texas at Austin and is the author of five monographs, including German National Cinema (2008, second revised edition) and Topographies of Class: Modern Architecture and Mass Society in Weimar Berlin (2008). She has also published numerous articles and edited volumes on German film and Weimar culture. Her current book project is titled Political Affects and Deals with the Fascist Imaginary in Postfascist Cinema.
Professor Hake's selection as editor was the result of a long and careful process. We were gratified that the number of candidates for this position was so large, and their qualifications so extraordinary. It is a testimony to the professional commitment of our members and to the quality of their scholarship that we had so many excellent candidates.
