Speaker Dr. Adam Seipp is Professor of History and Associate Department Chair at Texas A&M University. His research and teaching focus on post-1945 German history, specifically on war and social change in modern Germany. He is the author of several books and articles, including Strangers in the Wild Place: Refugees, Americans, and a German Town, 1945-1952 (Bloomington, 2013), the editor of Modern Germany in Transatlantic Perspective (Berghahn Books; 2017), and two articles: Buchenwald Stories: Testimony, Military History, and the American Encounter with the Holocaust in the Journal of Military History (2015) and The Driftwood of War: The US Army, Expellees, and West German Society, 1945-1952 in War and Society (2013). Dr. Seipp is working on two research projects. The first is a social history of the American military presence in the Federal Republic of Germany from 1945-1995. The second examines the role of testimony in shaping narratives of concentration camp liberation in the United States and Germany. Dr. Seipp’s research has been funded by the Fulbright Program, German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), German Marshall Fund, German Historical Institute – Washington, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. He currently serves as a DAAD Research Ambassador and is the 2015-16 A.I. and Manet Schepps Foundation Teaching Fellow of the USC Shoah Foundation.
