Title: Das kulturelle Gedächtnis der Wende in autobiografischer deutscher Jugendliteratur
Supervisor: James M. Skidmore
The Waterloo Centre for German Studies and the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies are hosting a reading by German author Michael Götting. He'll read from his 2015 novel, Contrapunctus (English: Counterpoint).
Götting is an author, journalist and curator. He writes for ZEIT ONLINE, Deutschlandfunk and the Tagesspiegel and works as a freelance artist and curator for Berlin's postmigrant theatre Ballhaus Naunystrasse.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
