Created Wild: Criminal Children and the Bourgeois Family in German Realism, 1850-1900

March 31 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Hamilton Hall, Room 569, 102 Emerson Dr
Chapel Hill, NC 27514 United States
+ Google Map

The literary figure of the criminal child in German Realism is framed not as a problem of rising industrialization and urbanization but rather as a problem of the emerging bourgeois family. Theodor Fontane’s Grete Minde (1879) and Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach’s Das Gemeindekind (1887) demonstrate how the aestheticization of structures such as the bourgeois family extends to incorporate marginal figures, including the criminal child. Through the relationship between the criminal child and bourgeois family, Fontane and Ebner reveal both the allure and danger of the emerging bourgeois family as an organizing principle for late-nineteenth-century German and Austrian reality.

Visegrad Talk ~ Universities as Elevators: Education and Migration of Human Capital in Slovakia

April 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
FedEx Global Education Center Room 4003, 301 Pittsboro Street
Chapel Hill, NC 27516 United States
+ Google Map

Since 1990 there has been a sharp rise in the Slovak higher education sector. The number of students has increased fourfold, the number of universities has doubled, and new universities have been established in smaller towns. Despite this trend, Slovakia still faces emigration of the university-educated population. This has negFedative implications for the country’s future economic development. This talk will address the key drivers of today’s “brain drain” in the region, while analyzing the impact of individual characteristics, family background, and the wider socio-economic environment on people’s decision to seek employment abroad. Štefan Rehák is a professor and chair of the Economics Department at the University of Economics in Bratislava, Slovakia. He also serves as the current president of the Slovak Section of European Regional Science Association. His primary academic interests include analysis and evaluation of European Union cohesion, strategy and program development, policy design, and regional economics. This talk is made possible by a University Studies Grant from the International Visegrad Fund.
