This summer, the Department of German Studies at Emory University proudly celebrates the 40th anniversary of its Summer Study Abroad Program in Vienna. On this occasion, we are hosting a conference, entitled “Education-Abroad Programs in German-Speaking Europe in an Age of Globalization and Virtuality” that will bring over 30 international experts in the field to our campus.

We are happy that Russell Berman, distinguished professor of German Studies and Comparative Literature at Stanford U., and past president of the MLA, will be our keynote speaker. His presentation is entitled:

“From Grand Tour to Active Learning: Study Abroad and the Transformation of Undergraduate Education.”

Friday afternoon, March 22 at 4:30 p.m.

Oxford Road Bldg, 3rd floor (across from Emory’s Barnes and Nobles).
