Teaching and Research Interests

Arthur Grauman recently returned to college-level teaching after working outside of academia for a number of years at Langenscheidt Publishing and as a German teacher at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. In graduate school his main areas of concentration were 18th- and 19th-century German literature and German intellectual history. Also trained in classical music, he focuses in his dissertation on the interrelationships between musical and visual motifs in Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister novels. His primary passion has always been pedagogy. At Harvard he was awarded the Jack Stein Teaching Fellow Prize for excellence in language teaching and earned seven Harvard University certificates of distinction in teaching based on student evaluations. In his classes at DePaul he is particularly interested in incorporating Internet resources to enhance the learning experience. As a native of the Pacific Northwest, he is an avid skier and hiker and can often be found at the Lake Michigan beaches in the summer.
