Adrian Daub received his Ph.D. in May 2008 from the University of Pennsylvania. His dissertation focused on philosophical approaches to marriage in German Idealism and German Romanticism (“Uncivil Unions – The Metaphysics of Marriage in German Idealism and Jena Romanticism, 1794-1801”). His recent publications include “’The Abyss of the Scream’- On the Music of Hermann Nitsch” (in a volume entitled Blood Orgies: Hermann Nitsch in America), “Adorno’s Schreker – Charting the Self-Dissolution of the Distant Sound” (in Cambridge Opera Journal) and “’Donner à voir’: The Logic of the Caption in Alexander Kluge’s The Devil’s Blind Spot and W.G. Sebald’s Rings of Saturn” (in a volume entitled Searching for Sebald). A German-language monograph on cultural perceptions of four-hand piano music in 19th century Europe will be published this fall; Professor Daub is currently working on a book on German thought on marriage from Kant to Nietzsche.
