 American Studies Leipzig Welcomes Picador Professor Catherine Chung 

Submitted by Dr. Sebastian M. Herrmann on Thu, 04/02/2009 - 07:30

American Studies Leipzig is proud and honored to announce Catherine Chung as Picador Guest Professor for the summer term 2009.

Catherine Chung received her MFA from Cornell University, where she has also taught creative writing and essay writing classes. She was a MacDowell Colony National Endowment for the Arts Fellow, and has received fellowships from Hedgebrook and Jentel, and a waiter-scholarship from the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and has received grants from the Lannan Foundation at SFAI, the Ludwig Vogelstein Foundation, and the Constance Saltonstall Foundation.

Chung’s work has also appeared or is forthcoming in Quarterly West, Guernica Magazine, and The Journal. She is currently completing her first novel, Forgotten Country. The novel follows a Korean family emigrating to America and explores what happens when certain narratives are broken by events such as war, death, displacement, and disappearance.

Catherine Chung will stay at Leipzig University from April to June to teach two courses in the American Studies Leipzig program and to work on her novel.
