Henning Wrage

Henning Wrage received his Dr. phil. in German literature from Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. His thesis (published as “Die Zeit der Kunst” with Winter University Press: Heidelberg 2009)  is a comparative history of East German literature, film and television in the 1960s.

His current research has two focuses: German media and postwar culture, and the cultural history of interactivity.

At Gettysburg, Professor Wrage serves as the faculty advisor for the German Club and as the faculty mentor for the German House; he works with the „Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum“ committee, took part in the Mellon/Central Pennsylvania Consortium Blended Learning workshop series and has won a CPC Course Development Grant.
