Change is a two-way street, and among its busy comings and goings, it has its sorrows as well as its rewards. This year we lost two beloved members of our department to cancer. Kari Gade passed away this past March, with her sister Anne Lill Gade and cousin Lisa Gade Asquini by her side. Esther Ham passed away at the end of September, with her husband Peter Hofker by her side.
Fall 2022 Newsletter
Message from the Editor
Grüße aus Bloomington!
The end of the year is upon us again, and this one has been a challenging one for reasons you will read about in these pages. But as with any challenging time, this one also brought rewards and riches, if not of the literal kind, then certainly in deep and lastingly heartfelt ways. We suffered some bitter losses, celebrated some significant milestones, and pondered the utter contentment of a cat in the sunshine, while all along exploring and developing academic and professional pathways. We’ll let the contributors to this year’s newsletter tell you more themselves.
Class notes from the IU Alumni Association
The Indiana University Alumni Association sends us this invitation to keep in touch via the IUAA Class Notes: Tell us about all the achievements and milestones in your life. We want to know when you get married. When a future Indiana University alum joins your family. When you win an award, publish a book, or get a great new job. If it’s good news for you, it’s good news to us.
This newsletter is published by the Department of Germanic Studies, with support from the College of Arts and Sciences, to encourage alumni interest in and support for Indiana University.
