PreviousNext The Max Kade Center for European Studies has a rich tradition of offering undergraduates major and minor options in the study of European affairs.
The European Studies major (EUS) was designed for students who want to broaden their awareness of Europe and to prepare for international careers or advanced study.
In 2006, on its 25th anniversary as an academic unit, the Center for European Studies was renamed the Max Kade Center for European and German Studies and was expanded to include a central focus on the role of Germany within its European and transatlantic contexts with the aid of a major grant from the Max Kade Foundation in New York.
Torben Lütjen is the DAAD Visiting Associate Professor for European Studies and Political Science, through a joint appointment of the Max Kade Center for European and German Studies in addition to Vanderbilt's Department of Political Science.
Prior to his arrival at Vanderbilt, he was the acting director of the Institute for Democracy Research at the University of Göttingen in Germany.
From 2009-2015, he headed a research group at the University of Düsseldorf that explored the mechanisms behind different levels of ideological polarization in the USA and Europe, funded by a Schumpeter-Fellowship of the Volkswagen-Foundation.
His research interests include comparative politics, American politics, political parties, sociology of knowledge, and methods of political ethnography
In Spring 2017, Torben taught "The Rise of Right-Wing Populist Parties in Advanced Democracies" and "West European Politics."
In the fall of 2017, he will teach "Social Movements" and "Ideological Polarization in Historical and Comparative Perspective."
