Thirty Years of German Unification

September 4, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

THIRTY YEARS OF GERMAN UNIFICATION

SEPTEMBER 4 @ 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM

Prof. Dr. Christiane Lemke will discuss the political, social, and economic implications of unification based on her years of research and teaching. In addition, she will also provide a personal perspective on studying, teaching, and living in West Berlin, Leipzig, and Potsdam, and then becoming a full professor in Hannover in 1996. She will address the following questions: What is the significance of unification in the collective memory? How has unification changed politics and German political parties? Are there still differences between the East and the West? And how is unified Germany viewed by its neighbors?

Professor Konrad Jarausch, UNC History Department, will serve as discussant. Kathleen Shanahan Lindner, Center for European Studies Executive Director, will moderate the discussion. Please RSVP for this virtual event by 12pm on Friday, September 4.
