Maple Leaf & Stars and Stripes 

By Maria Moss and Sabrina Völz

We’re in our ninth year of Maple Leaf & Stars and Stripes– if this lec­ture series were a child, it would be in third grade by now.

We’re espe­cial­ly proud to announce this year’s bilin­gual (German/English) kick­off talk by Peter Worts­man, New York author and trans­la­tor of Aus­tri­an-Jew­ish descent. Inter­est­ing­ly, he’s the recip­i­ent of the Geert­je Potash-Suhr Pros­apreis. Cit­i­zens of Lüneb­urg will rec­og­nize this pres­ti­gious award, named after for­mer Lüneb­urg res­i­dent Geert­je Suhr.

On Octo­ber 24, we will also be announc­ing the win­ner of the Amer­i­can Stud­ies Blog con­test in the Access Amer­i­ca cat­e­go­ry. The writer of the win­ning blog, which will be post­ed on Octo­ber 30, will be present.

Please join us for an excit­ing evening in build­ing 12, room 013, from 18:15 to 19:45 at Leuphana Uni­ver­si­ty Lüneb­urg, Uni­ver­sität­sallee 1. Click here for the cam­pus map.
