Student Spotlight: Christy Wahl as Student Rep & DAAD/CGES Research Fellow

Christy Wahl, Ph.D. Candidate, attended the German Studies Association Conference in Portland at the beginning of October as the organization’s first Graduate Student Representative. She successfully negotiated changes in the dues structure reducing membership fees for graduate students and allocating more travel funding for students and non-tenure-track faculty. Christy also received a 2019–20 Research Fellowship from UW–Madison’s Center for German and European Studies (CGES) with funding provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst).
