Birger Vanwesenbeeck publishes articles on Stefan Zweig
Friday, February 08, 2013
Birger Vanwesenbeeck, associate professor of English, has had two book reviews on the Austrian writer Stefan Zweig published in the Journal of Austrian Studies (Nebraska University Press). The reviews evaluate a new English translation of Zweig’s travel writings (Journeys); and a new essay collection in German (Stefan Zweig und Europa) that probes Zweig’s complicated relationship to Europe.
Prof. Vanwesenbeeck has carried out extensive research in the Stefan Zweig archive at SUNY Fredonia, the largest collection of its kind in North America. He is also the coordinator of the Biannual Stefan Zweig Lecture series which brings international speakers to campus to share their scholarship on Zweig.
The 2nd Biannual Stefan Zweig Lecture will take place on Tuesday March 19 at SUNY Fredonia in Rosch Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m.
