Winter Semester COVID-19 Updates

I’m currently on a one-person study tour through the US to research the ongoing presidential elections. I will post larger, in depth-pieces to American Studies Leipzig’s election blog and will use my personal blog below to report on the everyday encounters. More information on my journey is also available in this news item. Please enjoy reading, and please comment or ask questions.


Suspension of Teaching between Dec. 17 and Jan. 10

Per the university leadership’s decision, all teaching—including digital formats—will be suspended between Dec. 17 and Jan. 10. From the feedback we have received, faculty at American Studies Leipzig understand that this decision makes dealing with the ongoing pandemic easier for some students but that it also presents an additional set of unfortunate challenges for many others.
