Dr. Nancy Nenno and Dr. Morgan Koerner present at Annual German Studies Association Conference

This weekend, two CofC German professors presented on the research at the Annual German Studies Association Conference in Arlington, VA.

Dr. Nancy Nenno presented on her work at the GSA Seminar “Political Activism in the Black European Diaspora: From Theory to Praxis.” Her paper explores the role that public memorials play in the political activism of Black Germans and Austrians by juxtaposing the establishment and role in public discourse of memorials to Black individuals.

Dr. Morgan Koerner gave a presentation on the prolific German theater author and director René Pollesch and his theater’s complicated relationship to digital culture, in a paper entitled “‘Macht es für euch selbst!’ Participatory Culture and Performative Process in René Pollesch’s Theater.”
