Overview

American Studies Leipzig seeks to be an active participant in the public dialogue about the nature of American life, and about the role of the United States in German, European, and World Affairs. We pursue public dialogue at the local, regional, and national level; and our colleagues have appeared in local and national radio, local and national tv, and local and national newspapers (examples include MDR Radio, MDR Fernsehen, Deutschlandfunk, Phoenix TV, Leipziger Volkszeitung, General Anzeiger (Bonn), Chemnitzer Freie Presse, Magdeburger Volkstimme, Ostsee Zeitung).

 

Recent Activities

Recent examples of such public dialoge include the community event organized by American Studies and Advocates for Informed Democracy about the future of German American relations. The event was held at Leipzig's Haus des Buches on January 11, 2006.

Panelists included the former Lord Mayor of Leipzig Hinrich Lehman-Grube, American Consul General Mark Scheland, and the Member of Germany's Parliament Manfred Kolbe. Moderator was Anita Kecke, Senior Editor for International News at the Leipziger Volkszeitung.
