Katharina Schröder, a PhD student from the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies, is looking for people interested in participating in her PhD research. She is exploring the experience of adults who were raised in (partly) German speaking families in Canada (and/or other places where German is not a majority language). Specifically, she is looking for participants who are taking steps to further develop their German, either formally or informally, or who have done so, as adults, in the past.
Prof. Alice Kuzniar will be teaching a new course on German transnational film in Winter Term 2015. GER 359: Transnational Film, Intercultural Encounters will explore recent German cinema's involvement with other cultures.
