Grant awarded to Grove City College professor
GROVE CITY, Pa.
Robert Clemm, assistant professor of history at Grove City College, recently received an Individual Faculty Development Seminar grant and funding from the Council on International Education Exchange to attend the “Ruin & Revival: History, Modern Memory & Identity Seminar” in Germany and Poland this summer.
A specialist in European history, Clemm will attend lectures, visit sites, have direct discussions and dialogues with local people and participate in workshops, including attending a Jewish culture festival.
In Warsaw, focus is placed on central institutions of memory and identity, such as the Institute of National Remembrance and the Museum of the History of the Polish Jews.
Berlin site visits include The Berlin Wall Memorial and The Topography of Terror, former headquarters of the SS and Gestapo by the Nazis during World War II.
“I am honored to have been invited to attend this seminar and gratified by the support and encouragement I have received from the Office of International Education,” Clemm said.
Linking the historical findings, Clemm’s goals include enriching his teaching of humanities courses and designing a future course on the Holocaust to benefit Grove City College students.
