Application deadline is April 15, 2022.

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM : Migration and Memory : Berlin, Germany

The German Studies Department and the Jewish Studies Program offer a joint winterim program in Berlin, Germany, led by two Dartmouth faculty members, Veronika Fuechtner and Susannah Heschel, who will jointly teach one three week course during the winterim November 26, 2022 - December 18, 2022.  

This innovative course will be an intensive immersion in the history of Jews in Berlin's vibrant intellectual, cultural and political life from the late eighteenth century to the present. The program will meet daily, with tours of major relevant sites in Berlin and the surrounding areas, including museums, concentration camps, neighborhoods, memorials, and houses of worship. You will live with host families but do not need any German language.  The course also includes seminar discussion, evenings at theatre, concerts, lectures, and meetings with political leaders, scholars, writers, musicians, artists, and clergy.

This program will constitute a single course credit during the winterim period and students will need to be enrolled in 2 or 3 courses during the regular fall term making the total fall term course load 3 or 4 courses.

Students will be required to have completed at least one course in JWST or GERM prior to the trip. They will also be required to participate in three preparatory meetings over the course of the fall quarter prior to their departure in December.  The first offering is planned for December 2022.
