Regional Colloquium 2019

Organized by Team Halle

Team Halle is pleased to host the first 2019 Regional Colloquium of American Studies, which brings together scholars and students from the American Studies programs at the universities of Chemnitz, Dresden, Erfurt, Halle, Jena, and Leipzig to discuss the work in progress of doctoral and post-doctoral students. The following participants of the colloquium will be presenting their research projects: Alyn Euritt (Leipzig), Mascha Helene Lange (Leipzig), and Amanda Kay Halter (Jena). The presentation of each project will take about 15 minutes and the subsequent 30 minutes will be used for discussion. A new addition to the format is a project roundtable for everyone to discuss possibilities of collaboration and common interests.

Both staff and students are most welcome to join us!
