Fore’s first book Realism After Modernism: The Rehumanization of Art and Literature (MIT/October Books, 2012), which examines the return of mimetic figuration in German cultural production of the late 1920s, was recently awarded the Modern Language Association’s Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize, conferred biennially for the best work in German Studies. His next book, All the Graphs: Soviet Factography and the Emergence of Avant-Garde Documentary, which situates the multi-media work of Sergei Tret’iakov within the material culture of the early Soviet period, is forthcoming from University of Chicago Press. In addition to publishing articles in the journals New German Critique, October, Configurations and Grey Room, Fore has also edited and written an introductory essay to the English translation of Oskar Negt and Alexander Kluge’s History and Obstinacy (Zone Books, 2014), and has translated a number of texts from both German and Russian.
This year Fore was awarded fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the American Council of Learned Societies. In the past he received grants from the Social Science Research Council, the Fulbright, Humboldt and Whiting Foundations, and Cornell University’s Society for the Humanities; he was also the Anna Maria Kellen Fellow at the American Academy in Berlin in 2008-2009.
