"The Fall of the Berlin Wall Revisited"
13-14 November 2009

All welcome!


The Department of German Studies, Mary Immaculate College, and the Centre for Irish-German Studies, University of Limerick, invite you to a postgraduate weekend on 13-14 November 2009. 


This year marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, an event which historically signifies the end of the "Cold War" as well as a new beginning for Germany and the rest of Europe. The interdisciplinary colloquium on Saturday, 14 November, in Mary Immaculate College will discuss the profound changes precipitated by the fall of the Wall as well as memories of divided Germany and other former Eastern Bloc countries. It is hoped that the colloquium will bring together postgraduate students from Ireland, Great Britain and Germany to present new insights. 


The weekend opens with Masterclass sessions for postgraduate students (with Prof Hans-Walter Schmidt-Hannisa and Dr Sabine Egger) and a reading by Brigitte Burmeister at the University of Limerick today Friday, 13 November, 3pm in A1053. Brigitte Burmeister will also do a workshop for postgraduate students which the German Ambassador to Ireland, H.E. Busso von Alvensleben, will attend, today, 5.45pm in A1050.
