Every other year, the German Department of Washington University in St. Louis hosts an International Symposium on German Literature and Culture. In keeping with national and international scholars’ interest in newspapers, the history of communication, and early modern media, we have chosen as our 2016 topic, “Knowledge in Motion: Constructing Transcultural Experience in the Medieval and Early Modern Periods (1200–1750)”.
The symposium will be held March 31st through April 2 on the Danforth Campus of Washington University.
The event begins with an Assembly Series lecture at 4:00 pm on Thursday by Prof. Dr. Ottmar Ette (University of Potsdam) entitled “Knowledge in Motion–Knowledge through Motion: Nomadic Patterns of Life Writing.” The symposium is free and open to the public.
See the German department’s website for information about our department, and see event archive page for previous symposia. If you have additional questions, please email email@example.com or call (314) 935-5106.
