ASL Invited to Hold Talk at German-American Institute Tuebingen

The German-American Institute in Tuebingen invited American Studies Leipzig to speak to a regional audience on 12 April about the unfolding events surrounding the 2008 Presidential Election. In front of an audience of some 50 people at the DAI Tuebingen, ASL faculty member Crister Garrett held a talk entitled “And the Race is On! Trends and Themes in the 2008 Presidential Election”. Questions from the audience focused on the roles of Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama, who will be the possible candidate for the Republicans, and what role foreign policy will play in voter decisions. After a forty-five minute talk there was almost an hour of lively Q & A.
