ASL Launches 2008 Leipzig-Fulbright Lecture Series

American Studies Leipzig is proud to welcome six distinguished Fulbright Scholars from Germany and from around Europe to the University of Leipzig for the annual Leipzig-Fulbright Lecture Series. The theme for this year’s FLS is “ Reform and Reaction in the American Revolutionary ”. The theme deals with the conflict between American Revolutionary ideals, the efforts actually to achieve such ideals, and the reactions that such efforts have unleashed. It is a theme at the heart of the American story, and its global context.

The first lecture will be next Tuesday, 6 May, by Professor Murry Nelson. He will speak on “Immigration Old and New, and the Liberal Imagination”.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
