October 2021


The German Club holds Stammtisch every week. Stammtisch is a German tradition in which a group of friends meets every week at the same table, or Tisch, to socialize. Students, faculty and community members all are invited.


Several times during the semester, the Department of German Studies hosts scholars and artists who present their work. Visitors, departmental faculty and graduate students come together for a lively discussion. See our calendar for the next Colloquium or contact us.

Film Screening (GER 599/325)

Throughout the semester, the Department screens many German films for its students -- from classics to the contemporary. See our calendar for the next screening (in German with English subtitles) or contact Prof. Barbara Kosta.

Fisch out of Water

Come to an event that celebrates the aesthetic uniqueness that your native tongue brings to the foreign languages you speak—quirks, trips of the tongue, and all. Germans reciting in Spanish, US Americans singing in Russian, Turks reading in French, all conspiring to enjoy and embrace the aesthetic experience of blended languages. See our calendar for the next Fisch out of Water event.
