Events

The North American Studies Program is a vibrant place of research and scholarly exchange in the academic community. We regularly host national and international experts who present their current research in our lecture series as well as during the conferences and symposia that we organize. Together with our cooperation partners, we frequently organize events for the public at large. And we keep in close touch with our alumni to forge ties between present and former students.
