Posted: October 18, 2017
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.
