Liselotte Dieckmann Lecture with Karin Schutjer—San Marco in the Muck: Goethe’s Venetian Epigrams as the Poetry of Emergent Form

Prof. Schutjer's research interests concern broadly the intersections of philosophy, religion, literature, and social thought in the late-eighteeneth and early-nineteenth century Germany. She is the author of Goethe and Judaism: The Troubled Inheritance of Modern Literature (Northwestern University Press 2015) and Narrating Community after Kant: Schiller, Goethe, and Hölderlin (Wayne State University Press 2002). At OU she regularly teaches both upper and lower-division German courses, including "Goethe's Faust and the Problem of Evil", "Inventing Germany in the 18th Century", and "Classicism & Romanticism" and a general education class focused on German environmental culture.

Schutjer is currently the editor of the book series New Studies in the Age of Goethe published by Bucknell University Press and sponsored by the Goethe Society of North America. She also serves on editorial or advisory roles for Nexus:Essays in German-Jewish Studies and World Literature Today.
