Peter Höyng


Peter Höyng is Associate Professor of German Studies. Focusing on German literature and culture since 1750, his research centers thematically around four distinct areas: (1) genre-wise, he predominantly explores dramatic texts within its performative contexts, (2) geographically, his research tilts towards cultural creations emanating from Austria, (3) topically, he pursues the works of assimilated German-Jewish figures, and (4) the interaction between literature and classical music as evident in his ongoing research on Beethoven’s intellectual interests.
