Mark Webber

webberMark Webber’s research focuses on problems of interculturality that arise in attempts to negotiate differences in understanding historical, cultural, and linguistic features of North America and Europe, particularly Germany. His contributions to Canadian-German and Christian-Jewish understanding earned him the German equivalent of the Order of Canada, the Bundesverdienstkreuz Erster Klasse. A Germanist by training with degrees from Harvard and Yale, his current research involves questions of comparability rooted in a theory of metaphor and applied to such varied situations as the divergence of liberal and conservative thought in nineteenth-century German literature, the work of Franz Kafka, and understandings of twentieth-century German-Jewish relations.
