Cancellation of Literature and Culture I Module / Möglicher Ausfall des Moduls Literature and Culture I

Cancellation of Literature and Culture I Module

We regret to inform you that the module Literature and Culture I may have to be canceled for the upcoming Winter 2010/11 term. The University of Leipzig has decided to block one full teaching position for a time span of five months. This effectively deprives American Studies Leipzig of two seminars worth of teaching capacity, making it impossible for the institute to offer the Literature and Culture seminars announced in the course catalog. The institute has asked the university to review this decision.
