11 Years of “Maple Leaf & Stars and Stripes” at Leuphana University Lüneburg

We are pleased to announce that Dar­i­on Akins, the cur­rent U.S. Con­sul Gen­er­al from Ham­burg, will open our lec­ture series with a talk on “Worth the Strug­gle: Why Democ­ra­cy Mat­ters” at 6:15 p.m. in the forum of Leuphana Uni­ver­si­ty Lüneburg’s cen­tral build­ing (C40) on Novem­ber 18, 2021. The coro­n­avirus 3G rule (vac­ci­nat­ed, recov­ered, test­ed) applies to this event.

In addi­tion to the lec­ture on cam­pus, Julia Nitz (Uni­ver­sität Halle-Wit­ten­berg), Christoph Stro­bel (Uni­ver­si­ty of Mass­a­chu­setts, Low­ell), and Fiona Tolan (Liv­er­pool John Moores Uni­ver­si­ty) will also join us this semes­ter via Zoom. As always, each lec­ture lasts rough­ly 1 hour and is either inter­ac­tive or fol­lowed by a live­ly ques­tion-and-answer ses­sion. Please see the poster for fur­ther details.

Hope to see you at one or more of the talks.

Sab­ri­na Völz, Maryann Henck, and Maria Moss
