New German Historian Hired

Peter Staudenmaier will become the newest member of the department when he takes his place as professor of German history in Fall 2011. Peter was hired after a national search to succeed Irene Guenther, who left the department in spring 2010. A native of Milwaukee and a graduate of Marquette University High School, Peter received his PhD from Cornell University, where he wrote a dissertation called “Between Occultism and Fascism: Anthroposophy and the Politics of Race and Nation in Germany and Italy, 1900-1945.” He has taught previously at Cornell and at Montana State University; at Marquette, Peter will teach courses on modern Germany as well as European intellectual and cultural history.
