The Digital Summer Semester at American Studies Leipzig

In the upcoming summer semester 2021, all instruction at ASL will continue to be done remotely, mostly via Zoom and Moodle. We have not made this decision lightly. However, in light of the contingencies imposed by the pandemic, we feel that it is more important for faculty and students to be able to plan the upcoming months. Deciding to do one more fully digital semester, and making this decision now, will allow all of us to better prepare for the road ahead.

Einladung: Gespräch mit Ira Glasser und Filmscreening, 16.4.2021 um 18 Uhr

Ira Glasser war fast drei Jahrzehnte Direktor der American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) und hat sich mit spektakulären Gerichtsverfahren im Kampf um die Bürgerrechte in den USA einen Namen gemacht.

Bei der Veranstaltung geht es unter anderem um die Rolle der Misinformation und »Hatespeech« im Internet, ob die Rechte derer verteidigt werden sollte, die sich für antidemokratische Systeme und Politiken aussprechen und um die sogenannte »Cancel Culture«. Themen also, die den Kern unseres Zusammenlebens in einer digitalisierten, globalisierten Welt treffen.
