Emory Prof. Peter Höyng (l) and UT's Jeff Mellor (r) Publish Translation of Important German Novel

Jeff Mellor (Emeritus Professor of German) and Emory University's Peter Höyng were interviewed recently by WABE, a National Public Radio affiliate in Atlanta. The interview focused on the recent publication of the translation into English of a 1922 novel, The Blue Stain: A Novel of a Racial Outcast, by the Austrian writer Hugo Bettauer. Prof. Mellor and Prof. Höyng -- formerly on the faculty at the University of Tennessee -- authored the translation. The interview (accessible through the link below) discusses the novel's prescient examination of the United States' complex racial dynamics.
