During these strange and trying times of social isolation, the Waterloo Centre for German Studies will continue to support research into all aspects of the German-speaking world. Further, we remain committed to supporting German-related cultural programming for the university and our wider communities. To this end, we have gathered a listing of different online activities, events, and courses that may be of interest to those curious about German culture and language. Check out our list here.
