This was a great first week! I enjoyed meeting so many students of the class of 2015 at the academic fair, and also to see many other “veterans”. In German Studies we are excited about the 24 new students in German 101 and look forward to a productive and fun semester.
In 201, seventeen students will begin to combine their language skills with an ever greater focus on the culture and history of the German-speaking countries. Then there are German 222, where Prof. Drescher will work with students on German literature from the 19th to the 21st century, and German 200, in which Prof. Graml will work with students on the interdisciplinary history and culture of the Weimar Republic.
As the third and new person in our team we welcome Isabella Weber, our Teaching Assistant from the University of Graz, Austria. Isabella will teach German 211, the conversation course, and also hold the lab sections in German 101.
Over the next couple of days you will read more about the extra-curricular events we are planning, from outings organized by the Faust Club to film screenings. Of course, we love to hear your ideas, so if there’s anything you would be interested in collaborating on or organizing, do not hesitate to e-mail Gundolf Graml (ggramlATagnesscott.edu).
