Last week was the first Online Campus Week together with the TU Darmstadt in San Antonio's German sister city. The week-long event highlighted collaborations between Germany and the US in the fields of Politics, Engineering, Cyber Security as well as Culture. The contributors to panels, interviews, and discussions were representatives of various academic fields, of the German Embassy/the German Information Center, from German Industry, Military Services, and German Cultural Institutions. Thanks to Philina Wittke for her grant-writing and organizational skills that made this event successful.
The week ended with a session on Diversity in Germany with journalist and filmmaker, Jana Pareigis. You can view her documentary, Afro Germany, in English, in Spanish, or in German. You can view or listen to the Zoom conversation using this link.
From the Campus Week website: Jana Pareigis “is a powerful role model for the next generation of girls in Germany. She has an insatiable passion for people, politics, and puns. For her documentary Afro Germany, she traveled through the country to speak with other Black Germans and to discover their stories of the last 400 years. On the panel, she will share experiences with (Anti-)Racism in Germany and thoughts on Diversity in German Culture.”
