German Studies in the United States: Assessment and Outlook. Monatshefte Occasional Volume Number 1.
Lohnes, Walter F. W., Ed.; Nollendorfs, Valters, Ed.
This volume focuses on two principal aspects of German studies in the United States: (1) an assessment of the German-teaching profession from primary to graduate school, with attention to its "raison d'etre" in the present academic, social, and cultural situation, as well as its structures, aims, and personnel; and (2) strategies for survival and suggestions for self-improvement. The topics covered by the 28 contributions can be grouped as follows: (1) German studies as culture studies; (2) an examination of some instructional models for German studies on the university level; (3) the future of German studies; (4) German teachers on all levels; (5) teacher training; (6) the status and future of undergraduate and graduate German departments; (7) the role and function of linguistics in German studies; (8) German literature and comparative literature (9) career alternatives for students of German; and (10) articulation between one level of German instruction and the next.
