Thank you to everyone who came out to listen to Anant Kumar’s reading. Kumar presented from his wide-ranging oeuvre including short stories and poems that address life in contemporary Germany as well as the pitfalls and surprises a globally connected world creates.
Update September 26, 2012:
This event has been postponed to Spring 2013! Consult the Sonic Generator website for more information.
Fritz Lang’s iconic science fiction film Metropolis (1927) will be screened at the Woodruff Arts Center on Thursday, September 27, 2012 from 8:30-11:30pm. That’s fantastic. What’s even better: The film–often cited as inspiration for films such as Blade Runner and The Matrix–will be shown with a live performance of a new musical score, conducted by guest composer Martin Matalon.
Vielen Dank an alle, die zum Französisch-Deutschen Empfang gekommen sind! Merci beaucoup!

From Bach to BMW: Interdisciplinary Explorations of Culture, Economy,
Religion, and History in Contemporary Germany
In May of 2010 a faculty development seminar sponsored by a grant from The Halle Foundation enabled a group of eight ASC faculty members to spend two weeks in Berlin, Dresden, and Leipzig to gain a first-hand experience in contemporary eastern Germany. Come and see what kind of ideas, experiences (and photos) your colleagues from Art History, Economics, English/Film Studies, History, Spanish, Religious Studies/Asian Studies gathered. Faculty from any discipline who are considering taking students to Germany are especially encouraged to attend.
