Von Berlin to Kitchener: Connotations and Cultures, A Discussion Panel

Berlin’s name change to Kitchener was not just a simple vote. Tumultuous times divided the otherwise peaceful city into two groups, reflecting the Great War that had erupted in Europe two years prior and, in the end, made the name change in 1916 Berlin/Kitchener anything but simple.

Collaborative Works-in-Progress: Rediscovering Alexander Moritz Frey

Paola Mayer + Rüdiger Müller

Our talk will focus on our forthcoming edition of Frey's short fiction and on our plan for an article on his tale, "Der Mensch." We will address such questions as: Who was Alexander Moritz Frey? What did his oeuvre look like? How does one create an anthology that will put him back on the literary map? What does a Robinsonade written in 1940 by an exile author look like?

Canada is the guest of honour at the 2021 Frankfurt Book Fair. In that spirit, the Waterloo Centre for German Studies has chosen a Canadian author in German translation and is offering this meeting on a Sunday to make it more convenient for fellow readers from Germany to join us. We'll be reading A Complicated Kindness/Ein komplizierter Akt der Liebe, by Miriam Toews, translation by Christiane Buchner.
