"Bracing for Impact: University Outreach Programs in German"
Squeezed by shrinking humanities budgets and fearing the consequences of the
closure of high school German programs on enrollment numbers, many German
departments at institutions of higher education are bracing for impact.
Strategies often focus on developing interest in German language, culture,
and thought through outreach.
This AATG panel invites contributions discussing successful university
outreach programs such as outreach to k-12 schools, efforts to partner with
other disciplines and institutions in increasingly digital and global
universities, and the creation of intentional, integrated living-learning
environments for German to enhance student experiences.
Please submit proposals (250 words) to Matthias Vogel, University of Oregon:
[log in to unmask] and Monika Fischer [log in to unmask] by January 7,
