Robert von Dassanowsky, professor of German and film studies at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, was elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in London on Feb. 26. Originally founded in 1754, this multidisciplinary and now international institution encourages public discourse and critical debate by providing platforms for leading experts to share new ideas on social progress. It also "combines cutting-edge research and policy development with practical action." Von Dassanowsky also has been elected to serve a second term as executive council member of the Modern Austrian Literature and Culture Association, beginning with the organization's conference this May in Vienna.
