"'Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön.'
On the Image as Dramatic Motivation."
David E. Wellbery, Chair of the Department of Germanic Studies, joined the faculty of the University of Chicago in 2001 as the LeRoy T. and Margaret Deffenbaugh Carlson University Professor and holds appointments in the Department of Germanic Studies and the Committee on Social Thought.
Professor Wellbery’s current research project is a large-scale study of Goethe’s literary work and scientific and aesthetic writings that centers on the concept of endogenous form. He is also preparing a monograph entitled Self-Relation: A Neo-idealist Theory of Literature.
