SHORT BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Gert Fehlner was born and lived in Eastern Bavaria until 1988 when he moved to Bonn to work at the US Embassy as a cultural affairs specialist. In 1991 he left the US Foreign Service to return to university, taking over the position of Head of Administration at the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg's English Department. He has remained at Freiburg and, aside from his regular job in his department, has spent more and more time working on projects of modernization and Europeanization of higher education. This stems from his professional career, and his studies of history and political science at the Universität Regensburg (Bavaria) and the universities in the US (University of Georgia at Athens; University of California at Berkeley, and University of Oregon at Eugene). In 1998 and 2010 he served as Fulbright exchange professor at the University of Oregon at Eugene in the Depts. of English and History, and the Environmental Studies program, and more recently he taught at Colgate University as O' Connor Distinguished Professor in the Humanities (2014).
