Portrait of an Interdisciplinary Life. John Neubauer zum 70. Geburtstag

Published Online: 2008-02-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/arca.38.2.229

In 1982, while waiting at Schiphol, the Dutch national airport, John Neubauer, then Professor of German at the University of Pittsburgh, read an advertisement in the Times Literary Supplement for a professorship at the University of Amsterdam. He decided to give it a try – to return to Europe which he left some decades ago. Selection committees had a rich choice of candidates in those days of major funding cuts (a period from which the University still has not recovered). Nevertheless, the committee's decision was not too difficult and, since 1983, John has occupied the chair of Comparative Literature (Algemene in het bijzonder Vergelijkende literatuurwetenschap) at the University of Amsterdam.
