Kromm, Genevieve
Genevieve "Jenny" Kromm '13 has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study censorship campaigns in Vienna, Austria, during WWI, and their impact on the arts. Kromm, a 24-year-old whose hometown is Santa Clara, studied in Vienna through an SCU Research Travel Award in 2011 and received many scholarships and opportunities to study German music and language while at SCU. Her Fulbright topic was influenced by a history class taught by Professor Matthew Newsom Kerr called War and Democracy: WWI in the UK, which she said “changed my life”; and by her senior thesis, which focused on the collapse of the Austrian monarchy before and during WWI and rising nationalism of former Austro-Hungarian territories. Jenny also credits her thesis advisor, Professor Amy Randall, and her German teacher, Professor Josef Hellebrandt, for her success at SCU.
President Michael Engh, S.J. said of the recipients: “Their accomplishments and intellectual endeavors represent the best of Santa Clara University. They, like Santa Clara, have a special appreciation for the international exchange of ideas and culture as a source for positive global change.”
