1. „We Gon’ Be Alright: African American History through Music“

Lecture and Discussion for Students

Speaker: Dr. Bärbel Harju, Amerika-Institut LMU München

 

This lecture examines African American history through music. From work songs and spirituals of the times of slavery to jazz, blues, and bebop of the Harlem Renaissance; from the anthems of the Civil Rights Movement to hip hop and today’s diverse soundtrack of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, we will take a closer look at how music reflects and shapes the social context in which it is created and performed.

 

 

2. Immigration, Refugees, and Nativism

Lecture for Students

Speaker: Dr. Andreas Etges, Amerika-Institut LMU München

 

Until World War I, millions of German, Irish, Italian and other European “Auswanderer” immigrated to the United States, desperately trying to leave serious economic and social problems in their homelands behind. Catholics frequently faced strong rejection by nativist groups that considered them a danger to American society. From the 1920s to 1965 a restrictive quota system made it much more difficult to immigrate. How to deal with large numbers of refugees is still a very controversial topic in the United States. Looking at a time when millions of Europeans were “economic refugees” offers a valuable comparative perspective on how we have been dealing with the current refugee crisis. 

 

 

3. Academic Writing and the W-Seminar in English (or How to Write an Academic Paper)

Presentation for Students

Speaker: Dr. Amy Mohr

 

This presentation reveals the process of writing an academic paper in English with an overview and examples drawn from the students’ individual topics. Designed to motivate, organize, and reduce stress, the presentation helps the students understand how to develop their topic and communicate the significance of their project. The seminar will be adapted to the needs of the class.

 

 

4. Harper Lee

Lecture for Students

Speaker: Dr. Amy Mohr

 

Author of To Kill a Mockingbird (1960) and Go Set a Watchman (2015), Harper Lee’s life and works have captured America’s literary imagination. This presentation will give an overview of her life, her classic novel’s historical and cultural significance, and the ongoing literary debates about her work. We will also consider the presence of her novel in American popular culture with reference to the 1962 film and the recent Broadway adaptation.
