Transatlantic Perspectives project completed

June 9, 2014

On Thursday, June 9, 2014, the GHI said good-bye to the last two members of the "Transatlantic Perspectives" Project, Corinna Ludwig and Andreas Joch, the project's two doctoral fellows. This social event marked the end of a pioneering project for both the GHI Washington and the Max Weber Foundation. Under the leadership of Jan Logemann, who left the GHI in April to take up his new post as assistant professor at the University of Göttingen, Corinna Ludwig and Andreas Joch and Barbara Louis (who departed for the University of Vienna last year) were the first long-term doctoral fellows at the GHI Washington or any other institute of the Max Weber Foundation. The GHI wishes them all the best for completing their books on "European Migrants and the American City: Architecture and Urban Planning in the Context of Transatlantic Migration" (Andreas Joch) and "Bridging the Atlantic Gap: German Business in the United States after the Second World war" (Corinna Ludwig). Lauren Shaw, formerly project associate for "Transatlantic Perspectives," has also finished her service for the project and is now student at the University College London.
