Stanford Insights from Michael Meyer, WU Vienna
Michael Meyer, a recent visiting scholar and "southern Scandinavian" hailing from WU Vienna, spent his Winter and Spring quarters at SCANCOR writing a weekly article about his California experiences for DER STANDARD, an Austrian daily newspaper.
An archive of his articles can be found here, however as they are all written in the German language, SCANCOR conducted its own interview with Michael to gain access to some of his insights.
Q: How did the article series about your visit to SCANCOR and life in California for DER STANDARD come about?
A: WU Veinna has a long lasting cooperation with DER STANDARD. To reach a broader public, we regularly report about our research results in this Austrian daily newspaper. When I decided to go to SCANCOR, Karin Bauer, the senior editor for the career supplement of DER STANDARD, asked me to write a weekly article about my experiences at Stanford. And so I did. The title “Stanford Insights” was Karin’s idea. As usual at DER STANDARD, the article is in the printed weekend issue and then published on the web four days later.
Q: What was the initial reaction to the article series in Austria?
