Stefanie Populorum

Stefanie Populorum was awarded $26,346 to support her dissertation which explored the interdependence between Austrian literacy and visual productions and economic theories within the context of two major economic crises: the breakdown of the Austrian economy after World War I and the global recession in 1929. The fellowship was designed to allow Populorum to visit Deutsches Literaturarchiv in Marbach, Germany to study the works of Hermann Broch as well as visit archives in California and North Carolina. The fellowship enabled Populorum to research and write much of her dissertation.

Stefanie Populorum is a Ph.D. candidate in German Language and Literature at Rutgers University and has served as both a teaching assistant and president of the Rutgers German Graduate Student Organization.
