David  Jenemann Author of Evaluating Organization Development

David Jenemann

Associate Professor
University of Vermont

I am a cultural and intellectual historian, interested in the origins of ideas and their expression in contemporary life. I am also a sports fan, and I have had the good fortune to play some of the sports I love into my adult life and even better fortune to be able to research and write about them professionally.


I am a professor of film and television studies, and the Co-Director of the University of Vermont Humanities Center. My research interests are broadly interdisciplinary, and I have published in fields ranging from Anthropology and Philosophy to Art History and Sports Sociology. One subject I keep returning to is the American exile years of the German intellectuals known as The Frankfurt School and their encounter with US politics and mass culture in the 1930s and 40s.
