CAS-Fellow Philipp Stelzel receives the Edmund Spevack Award
On 28 July 2012, Prof. Dr. Christof Mauch (LMU) presented CAS Fellow Philipp Stelzel (Ph.D., Chapel Hill) with the Edmund Spevack Award. Stelzel was a visiting fellow at the Center for Advanced Studies in July 2012 with the research focus of "Transatlantic Cultures".
The Edmund Spevack Award is accompanied by a monetary award of 1000 Dollars and is presented annually at Harvard using funds of the Edmund Spevack Foundation. It serves to honor the memory of the German-American historian Edmund Spevack, who died in 2002 at the age of 38 (BA Harvard, Ph.D. Johns Hopkins), and who authored fundamental works on German-American history of the 19th and 20th centuries.
Christof Mauch honored the works of Philipp Stelzel on relations between German and US historians in the postwar period and called them "pioneering studies of transatlantic historiography and interdependence history".
The award was presented by the US Consul for Public Affairs, Leyla Ones, and Prof. Christof Mauch in the presence of Dr. Sonja Asal (CAS), Prof. Dr. Petra Goedde (CAS/ Temple University) and Dr. Dorothea Schwarzhaupt (Foundation for Transatlantic Culture and Politics).
