Students interested in contemporary German politics and culture should take advantage of two exciting opportunities.
On Thursday, January 19, 6:30-8:30pm, our friends from the German Studies Department at Emory University will host journalist Henryk Broder, a wellknown journalist who has worked as a corresponded for practically all major German publications and has more recently attracted attention with books about the role of Islam and immigration in 21st-century Germany (Hurray, we capitulate; A Critique of Pure Tolerance).
Where: Emory University, 3rd Floor Oxford Presentation room, 1390 Oxford Road (parking adjacent)
On Thursday, January 26, the German Cultural Institue (Goethe Institut) in Atlanta will host a lecture by Dr. Vicky Birchfield from the Georgia Tech European Union Excellence Center, titled “From the Elysée Treaty to ‘Merkozy’: Taking Stock of French-German Relations and the Future of the European Project. (This event requires an rsvp to email@example.com by Jan 23!).
Take advantage of these opportunities to engage with German and European politics outside of the classroom!
Both talks are held in English!
