Dear Colleagues and Students, We are writing to you today as the Board of Directors…
The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at the University of Michigan called “Sneak Peek: Academic Futures in Teaching, Scholarship and Activism.” Our aim is to interest current undergraduates across the country in graduate-level study of German language, culture and politics by offering them a taste of grad school.
The event will be held via zoom Friday and Saturday, November 13-14, 2020. To facilitate students’ application process, we’ll also provide ‘nuts and bolts’ training for assembling grad school applications to any humanities program. Students will meet current graduate students, learn the basics of the application process, and attend two faculty-led seminars – one on Diversity, Equity and Inclusiveness initiatives and the other on the American presidential election from a German perspective.
Please encourage your students to register via the following link: https://forms.gle/Wm1GY6Doia2kpAHB6. Please note that the event is not solely intended for German majors, but rather all students with an interest in German literature, history, film, philosophy, contemporary culture, museum studies, and politics. If you have a student (or two) you know is considering graduate school and would be a good fit for graduate study, please send their names and contact info at your earliest convenience. We are particularly interested in supporting the application of underrepresented minorities.
