"My stay at the University of Passau was an excellent chance not only to build on work with colleagues and collaborators at Passau but, further, to understand the rich intellectual context and culture that they and their students work within; we’ve already begun work on a further collaboration, based on what we accomplished on-campus this past May. A few of the things that struck me most during my visit include the interdisciplinary engagement across areas of inquiry, departments, and faculties that my Passau colleagues enjoyed on a daily basis, as well as the integration of the academic institution and its concerns with the institutions and bodies of the city itself. When I think back to my stay at the University of Passau, I recall the energy, the insights, and the accomplishment of the institutions — and the natural beauty of its environs."
