    Montag, 24.06.2024 - 18:00 Uhr

Discussion with Q&A. Join Melissa Frazier and Astrid Franke for a conversation about the current protests on U.S. campuses and the complicated issues that they raise, both specifically with regard to the on-going crisis in Israel and Palestine and more broadly in terms of how universities best foster free intellectual debate.

Prof. Dr. Astrid Franke is a professor of American Studies in Tuebingen. Her research interests include Popular Culture, Cultural History and Theory, Modern and Contemporary Novel, and, as an underlying thread, intersections of literature and sociology.
