After a semester of wonderful news for Dr. Hester Baer, including the publication of her book, “German Cinema in the Age of Neoliberalism“ and her appointment to co-editor of The German Quarterly, it continues with her promotion to Full Professor.

Dr. Baer joined the UMD SLLC faculty in 2013 as Professor of Germanic Studies, and has added several other affiliations to her academic career; notably as “core faculty member in Cinema and Media Studies and Comparative Literature, and an affiliate faculty member in the Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

Along with rigorous service and accomplishments to the field, Dr. Baer was also the co-faculty mentor, with Dr. Michele Mason, for the UMD SLLC Graduate Student Conference, which took place this past Spring and was considered an impressive success.


A very warm congratulations to Dr. Baer for her incredible accomplishments!
