Steve Davis has won a DAAD Graduate Fellowship for 2012-13. This will fund Steve's dissertation research next academic year in Germany, where he will be resident at the University of Oldenburg. He will work with Professor Hans Henning Hahn, one of Germany's leading authorities on the history of Eastern Europe and ethnic German expellees.
Steve's research focuses on the post-Cold War construction of a "europeanized" memory culture around the millions of Germans who fled or were expelled from the Czech lands in the wake of World War II. Steve's work is transnational and his research plans include work in archives in Germany and the Czech Republic. Last year, support from the American Council of Learned Societies and the Foreign Language and Area Studies program allowed him to study Czech intensively.
