Summer Report

Guten Tag! This blog was on “summer break” for a while, now it’s high time to resume writing and let you know what’s going on.

In May, eight ASC faculty members spent two weeks in Germany. Thanks to a generous grant from The Halle Foundation, we were able to visit Berlin, Leipzig, and Dresden and to collect experiences that will influence our teaching and research in the coming semesters.

Some of our students also spent time in German-speaking regions this summer. Katie Schrum attended a semester at the University of Graz in Austria, and Heather Coe studied at the University of Trier. Caitlin Shull and Charlotte Kubicz both worked in Germany as part of a paid internship with the Carl Duisberg Society. Over the next couple of weeks, they will share some of their impressions via this blog, so come back for more!
