Gerhard Dünnhaupt, FRSC (born August 15, 1927 in Bernburg (Saale)) is a German bibliographer, literary historian, emeritus professor of the University of Michigan, an honorary life member of the Modern Language Association of America, and a Life Member of the Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences of Canada. In September 1983, he chaired the international "Martin Luther Quincentennial Conference" in Ann Arbor, MI. He is the author of the only annotated bibliography of German Baroque literature.

Ancestry and background

Dünnhaupt is the son of a printer and newspaper publisher from Köthen (Anhalt). Beginning in 1964, he studied Modern Languages and Literatures at the University of Toronto, and, at Brown University in 1972, he submitted his dissertation about the German versions of the Epics of Ludovico Ariosto and Torquato Tasso.

Beginning in 1972, he taught German Literature and Bibliography at the University of Washington; four years later, he relocated to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he taught German Literature and Comparative Literature until 1992. During these years, he also fulfilled visiting professorships at the University of Illinois, the Universität Göttingen and Cornell University. Since 1992 he has been Professor Emeritus at the University of Michigan and Adjunct Professor at Queen's University in Kingston (Canada). Dünnhaupt is an honorary life member of the Modern Language Association and has been elected as Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

Main research

Dünnhaupt's main research interests involve German Renaissance and Baroque literature, history of printing and publishing, bibliography, and cultural history of the Early Modern Period; his scholarly articles deal frequently with the Fruitbearing Society as well as the history of his homeland of Anhalt. He was Editor of Rarissima litterarum and Book Review Editor for Michigan Germanic Studies. In September 1983, he organised the "Martin Luther Quincentennial Conference".

Honours

He was awarded the Prix Triennal de Bibliographie by the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) for his annotated Bibliographisches Handbuch der Barockliteratur.
