On the Radio: Prof. Thomas Wheatland discusses his new book, The Frankfurt School in Exile

Assistant Professor Thomas Wheatland from the History Department was interviewed recently on the public radio program Against the Grain about his new book, The Frankfurt School in Exile (http://www.upress.umn.edu/Books/W/wheatland_frankfurt.html).

Prof. Wheatland discussed his pioneering research into the Frankfort School, a group of eminent German intellectuals who fled Nazi oppression and relocated their institute to Columbia University from 1934-1950. He also talked about their influence on postwar American thought.

As one reviewer wrote, “The Frankfurt School in Exile uncovers an important, but neglected, dimension of the history of the Frankfurt School and adds immeasurably to our understanding of the contributions made by its émigrés to postwar intellectual life.”
