The Waterloo Centre for German Studies (WCGS) is pleased to present a two-day workshop on The Role of the Imagination in German Educational Thought. From the eighteenth century to the present, German-speaking pedagogues (e.g., Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang Goethe, Friedrich Schiller, and Hannah Arendt) have emphasized the importance of educating the imagination for the pursuit of social justice. Join us as we revitalize this important intellectual tradition for the Canadian university!
