The Winter Semester 2021/22 at American Studies Leipzig

Dear Students,

We want to update you on our plans for the winter term of 2021/22. We hope to be able to return to in-person instruction for as many classes as possible. However, at this point, we cannot tell you definitively how the next semester will look like, since the pandemic situation continues to change dynamically and since we are still missing key information about the upcoming term from the central university management. Nevertheless, we still want to communicate our current intentions to you:

More information on my journey is also available in this news item. Please enjoy reading, and please comment or ask questions.
