Faculty

Monika Hennemann

Monika Hennemann has graduate degrees in German and Musicology and has taught both subject areas at the Florida State University, the University of Cincinnati, the University of Birmingham (UK, not Alabama!), the University of London, and URI. In addition to giving numerous international lectures, she has published widely on various aspects of text-music relationship, particularly in connection to Felix Mendelssohn and other Romantics. Her forthcoming book on Mendelssohn's opera projects in their cultural context embraces once more the strong ties between language and music. She has been a faculty member at the Deutsche Sommerschule am Atlantik for many years and has worked her way up the ladder from humble summer school assistant to program director.

She is looking forward anew to the celebrated Newport harbor cruise, to Mark's splendid cuisine ("GutenAppetit!"--"Danke, gleichfalls!"), and to introducing the first- (Session 2) and third-year (Session 1) students to the delights of the German language.Once again, she will also be offering a mini-seminar on "German for Musicians," which she hopes will be of practical help to many musicians interested in exploring the magnificent cultural heritage of the German-speaking world first-hand.

She is looking forward anew to the celebrated Newport harbor cruise, to Mark's splendid cuisine ("GutenAppetit!"--"Danke, gleichfalls!"), and to introducing the third- and fourth-year students to the more advanced delights of the German language in Session II. In Session I, she will be in charge of the German Studies Seminar on "Frauenpower"--of course open to male and female students alike. Once again, she will also be offering a mini-seminar on "German for Musicians," which she hopes will be of practical help to many musicians interested in exploring the magnificent cultural heritage of the German-speaking world first-hand.
