Adrian Daub of Stanford University, Stanford, California, received the Max Kade Award for Best Article in The German Quarterly at the AATG’s recent meeting in Orlando. This award is supported by the Max Kade Foundation.  

Adrian Daub, who was promoted this year to the rank of Associate Professor at Stanford University, completed his Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania in 2008. He is the author of three books—the most recent is Tristan’s Shadow—Sexuality and the Total Work of Art after Wagner (2013)—and of numerous articles on literature, philosophy, music, psychology and sexuality. 

The article for which Adrian Daub was awarded this year’s Max Kade Prize, "Platen's Retreat: On the Poetics and Ethics of Memorizing Ballads,” is an elegant and well-researched consideration of the ethical and poetological aspects of the work of a relatively neglected poet, August von Platen. This prize is a deserved recognition of a splendid contribution to German literary and cultural studies.
