Ernst S. Dick, Dr. Phil., Professor Emeritus
Ph.D., University of Münster and Pennsylvania
Professor Ernst Dick taught Germanic philology, medieval literature, and modern German. Before joining the German department at Kansas in 1968, he taught at the University of Virginia. For shorter periods he was also affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, the University of Montana, and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His primary research interests are Germanic word studies and medieval German literature, especially in epic and romance. In the modern period, he pursues reception studies of medieval epic, but is also interested in the Novelle and in modern drama (Dürrenmatt). His major publications include an etymological and semantic study on central terms of Germanic religion and culture (Ae. DRYHT und seine Sippe), several co-edited books, and numerous articles on medieval German literature, Germanic philology, reception studies, and folklore. Reflecting his secondary interest in modern literature, he has also published articles on Annette von Droste-Hüllshoff and Friedrich Dürrenmatt.
