German events in Atlanta area

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 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!
