The aim of the Year of Germany program is, over the course of a full academic year, to take a wide-ranging look at Germany from its earliest history right up to current events. The Year of Germany program uses a multidisciplinary approach in order to understand and appreciate other countries and cultures.

 

A wide variety of events and activities will be held throughout the academic year.  We are currently in the process of brainstorming ideas of engagement and activities.  Submit your idea!  A basic outline of activities are: Featured books, readings, holdings; Highlighted courses with course content and focus; Lectures; Workshops and seminars; Cultural and social events
