German events at Agnes Scott

ASC German Students present at SPARC

A full day of interesting research presentations at Agnes Scott today, and German students participate actively. Starting at 9am, Julianna Jones, Elizabeth Talaska, Hilary Tobiasz, and Marquita Williams presented the German 340 website on Afro-Germans. They discussed the project’s layout/design as well as its pedagogical context, and each student talked about her own research on a specific area, ranging from the middle ages to the postwar period.

The following section featured Pia Adolphsen, German and IR double major, who presented her paper “Looks do Matter,” which was based on the connection between appearance and politics in two German literary texts, Heinrich Manns Der Untertan and Thomas Manns Mario und der Zauberer.

Both presentations went very well, excellent examples of the great work ASC’s students are doing.
