With sponsorship from the German Embassy in D.C., the German Department engages the Pitt community in all things German from the latest films (with subtitles) to panel discussion and student poster sessions during the month of October.
Thanks to Dr. Jaclyn Kurash’s grant writing skills and effort, the Department of German hosts German Campus Weeks since 2016. Campus Week is an interdisciplinary series of events on all things German sponsored by the Embassy of the German Federal Republic. Events include screening of current German films, lectures by invited speakers, as well as panels with experts across the disciplines often skyped in from Germany! 2019 explored “Germany, Then and Now: 1989-2019” and featured Consul General David Gill from the German Consulate in NY. The Grand Finale of Campus Week celebrates the intellectual work of our German Department students from beginning to intermediate-level German courses with a Poster Session and Competition. All events are open to the public and in English to allow everyone to learn more about Germany today.
