Farewell

Prof. Crister S. Garrett (1962 - 2019)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Prof. Crister S. Garrett. We have lost a wonderful colleague, a dear friend, and an outstanding scholar. Prof. Garrett joined American Studies Leipzig in 2003, bringing a clear vision and a unique energy that transformed and shaped the institute in the years since. His passing presents an immeasurable loss to the institute, to the students, and to the larger community. We will miss him so much.

I'm currently on a one-person study tour through the US to research the ongoing presidential elections. I will post larger, in depth-pieces to American Studies Leipzig's election blog and will use my personal blog below to report on the everyday encounters. More information on my journey is also available in this news item. Please enjoy reading, and please comment or ask questions.
