This weekend was a busy one for German and Russian Faculty at CofC. Dr. Nancy Nenno presented her research at the annual conference of the Philological Association of the Carolinas in Charlotte in a talk entitled “Angelo Soliman: Exemplum of Austrian Multiculturalism, Today and Yesterday.”
Meanwhile, back at CofC, the German program hosted the annual workshop of the South Carolina chapter of the American Association of Teachers of German (SCAATG). 26 German teachers attended the conference and the final presenter was our very own Stephen Della Lana, who gave an excellent presentation on his German Contemporary Issues class entitled “Incorporating current events in the classroom.” Many thanks to everyone, especially to LCWA board member Bill Semmes, who helped sponsor the SCAATG meeting!
The SCAATG workshop also happened to be during Accepted Students Day at CofC, where our faculty and students were also involved: Dr. Irina Erman gave a lecture on her Vampires course at noon and German and Russian Studies students Todd Middleton and Tyler Owens manned the German and Russian Studies table at TD arena from 10-1, while Dr. Koerner ran back and forth between Accepted Students events and the SCAATG workshop!
