“Integrating Immigrants” -- Campus Weeks Activities on the Tulane campus (Oct.- Nov. 2018)

In October/November 2018 the Dept. of Germanic & Slavic Studies hosted a number of activities around the topic of “Integrating Immigrants” into German society. Sponsored by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, the 2018 Campus Weeks “Shaping Germany” activities sought to shed light on the country’s migration policy via

-an exhibition on “Integrating Immigrants” (with 30 posters displayed on the 3rd floor of Newcomb Hall from Oct. 3-31);

-a film series under the aegis of the Tulane German Club, including screenings of Auf der anderen Seite (2007, by Fatih Akin); Café Waldluft (2015, by Matthias Koßmehl, and Tal der Ahnungslosen (2003) by African-German film maker Branwan Okpako);

-a guest lecture on Oct. 26 by Prof. Jaimey Fisher (UC-Davis) on “Spatializing the ‘Accent’: Immigration, Fatih Akin’s Head On (2004), and German National Cinema” followed by a screening of the movie and a reception. We were privileged to have the Honorary Consul of Louisiana, Susanne Veters Cooper as well as Minister Counselor Arvid Enders of the Germany Embassy join us at the event. The lecture was preceded by Tulane History professor Marline Otte’s introductory remarks on the background of immigration to Germany.
