Congratulations! Herzlichen Glückwunsch

The graduands will receive a diploma bearing the seals and signatures from the program's two partner institutions: University of Waterloo and Universität Mannheim, Germany.

Students in this two-year joint program spend one academic year at each university and write a thesis with input from colleagues at both institutions. The first cohort to graduate wrote theses on the following topics:

  • "Aren't we all a little bit like Dora? An examination of the function of neutral illness and the character Dora based on space construction in Irena Vrkljan's novel Buch über Dora"
  • "Humour as a Vehicle of Cultural Memory in Leander Haussmann'sSonnenallee and Wolfgang Becker's Good Bye Lenin!";
  • "Ethnic Identity of Russian Germans in Interaction. Attitudes towards Food Habits".

One of the students will receive her degree at this week’s convocation in Waterloo. The other two students will receive their degrees in Germany.
