…I majored in German Studies and History, and was an English Language Assistant in Austria the year after I graduated. Please feel free to pass my contact information on to students; I’m happy to speak with anyone thinking about study abroad, language assistantships, and ways to continue with German after they graduate.

2012 – Melanie Ungar ’08 joined an Alumni Panel at Colby this fall and reported good news:

…Things are going well. I passed my exams last spring and am working on my prospectus and first chapter now. … I’m writing on issues of gender and humor in Fontane, Mann, Ebner-Eschenbach, …. I’ve been abroad for at least a month every summer – twice with Duke in Berlin and once at the Uni Duisburg-Essen, and I’m applying to go abroad next year either to Tuebingen (through UNC) or Berlin (through Duke). … I taught at UNC for two years, and now I’m teaching at Duke, which is a very interesting change.
