German Professor wins grant, plans to use money for upcoming research project


By Hannah Gratti

SHIPPENSBURG – Shippensburg’s Modern Language staff member, Associate German professor David Wildermuth, is the winner of over $41,000 from the Harry Frank Guggerheim Foundation.

The Harry Frank Guggerheim Foundation supports research on violence, aggression, and dominance through many eras in world history.

Professor Wildermuth will put his grant winnings toward his long-awaited research project titled, “Ordinary Soldier? A case study of soldiers in the Nazi-Soviet War of Annihilation.”

Professor Wildermuth will spend the 2019-2020 academic year in Freiburg, Germany, to access the German Army’s 35thDivision’s primary archives. The outcome: a book to be seen and read by all.
