Traverso honored by Autonomous University of Barcelona

Enzo Traverso, the Susan and Bart Winokur Professor in the Humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S), has received an honorary doctorate from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB).
The university recognizes Traverso as “one of the historians with the most international influence today, especially for his contributions to cultural and intellectual history, and for the interdisciplinary nature of his works.” He will be honored in a ceremony on Nov. 28.
A specialist in the intellectual, cultural and political history of the 20th century, Traverso studies issues particularly relevant to understanding Europe in the last century and, relatedly, Europe today. He has devoted special attention to the German and Central European intellectual world, particularly to the German-Jewish intellectual milieu.
