Gordon Stewart

Discipline: German

Since taking his M.A. and Ph.D. in German at the Johns Hopkins University, Professor Gordon M. Stewart has taught German language, literature, and culture courses at the University of Virginia. As an associate dean for undergraduate studies in the College of Arts and Sciences, he has been active in curricular development, particularly study abroad programs. On four occasions Mr. Stewart has been a visiting professor at German universities, twice in Tuebingen and twice at the Free University of Berlin. Mr. Stewart’s interests in world travel, in general, and Germany, in particular, trace back to his own experiences as an undergraduate in Freiburg. As the University of Virginia expands its commitment to education abroad, Mr. Stewart has planned and led three trips for students to Germany, with another planned for Munich and Berlin in January, 2012. He is also a co-founder of the Center for German Studies at UVa, an organization to promote broad inquiry into Germany, German-American connections, and the enrichment of curricular, travel, and educational opportunities for undergraduates. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart sailed with Semester at Sea to the Mediterranean in the summer, 2010.
