The Annual Maximilian Aue Memorial Lecture


The annual Maximilian Aue Memorial Lecture was inaugurated in 2014 to commemorate Dr. Maximilian Aue’s many years of service to German studies at Emory University. Dr. Aue served on the German Studies faculty from 1968 to 2012 and was also a long-time affiliated faculty member with the Comparative Literature Department. His many contributions to the study of German at Emory included his pioneering establishment of the summer study abroad program in his hometown Vienna, Austria, now in its 42nd consecutive year of operation, his infectious love for literary study, and his lifelong devotion to his students.
