In a recent study conducted by Academic Analytics, the Ph.D. Program in Theatre ranked fifth in the country for the scholarly achievement of its faculty, according to a Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index. Further, in the "broad" category of Humanities, The Graduate Center was ranked fourth after Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. The rankings take into account scholarly publications, honors and awards, and grants. (These findings were reported in the January 12, 2007 issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education.) 


It is with great sadness that we announce the recent death of Distinguished Professor of Theatre and Comparative Literature, Daniel C. Gerould, who held the Lucille Lortel Chair in Theatre.  Professor Gerould was the leading U.S. authority in modern Eastern European drama and a gifted linguist, perhaps best known for his translations and criticism of the writings of the avant-garde Polish dramatist, novelist, and painter Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz.  Professor Gerould served the Graduate Center for more than forty years, mentoring generations of students, producing numerous books and articles, and editing the journal Slavic and East European Performance.  He was also a highly visible presence and driving force at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center, serving as its executive director from 2004 to 2008 and thereafter as its director of academic affairs and publications.  He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, friends, and students, both present and past.
