Lecture on globalization and German studies
Nov 12, 2010
02:00 PM to 03:00 PM
402 Burrowes Building

Professor Willi Goetschel, University of Toronto

“Embracing a post-national perspective does not entail depreciation or forsaking of literary and cultural traditions. On the contrary, enabling us to read better, read again and attend to the urgency of a different, and richer protocol that heeds the exigencies of the day will allow us to re-open the books and the world of letters that are now no longer subject to the dictate of national appropriation.”

–from Professor Goetschel’s 2009 Craig Lecture, “German Studies in a Post-National Age”
