Sneak Peek: The Future of German Studies: Teaching, Scholarship, Activism

Our aim is to interest current undergraduates across the country in graduate-level study of German language, culture and politics by offering them a taste of grad school. The event will be held via zoom Friday and Saturday, November 13-14, 2020. To facilitate students’ application process, we’ll also provide ‘nuts and bolts’ training for assembling grad school applications to any humanities program. Students will meet current graduate students, learn the basics of the application process, and attend two faculty-led seminars - one on DEI initiatives and the other on the American presidential election from a German perspective. The events will be as follow:

Friday, November 13, 11am-12:20pm
“Why graduate studies in German?”

Friday, November 13, 1:30-2:50pm
“Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Toward a More Just German Studies for the 21st Century” (Professor Kristin Dickinson)

Friday, November 13, 3-4:20pm
“Reading the American Election through the German Lens” (Professor Peter McIsaac)

Saturday, November 14, 11am-12:20pm
“Nuts and Bolts: How do I apply to graduate school?”

Please note that the event is not solely intended for German majors, but rather all students with an interest in German literature, history, film, philosophy, contemporary culture, museum studies, and politics.
