17th Transatlantic Students Symposium

The Future of Democratic Cultures
in Europe and the United States

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Oregon State University,
University of Warsaw
Vienna and Berlin, March 22-31, 2019


Program Description

The current geopolitical climate appears to increasingly produce narratives suggesting that democratic governments are on a declining path, that authoritarianism is a winning proposition, and that democratic values and cultures are losing their appeal on both sides of the Atlantic.

The 17th Transatlantic Students Symposium - which will take place in selected cities in Europe - investigates this proposition from a transdisciplinary perspective and discusses the historical, political, cultural and literary dimensions of democratic cultures in the United States and Europe.

Organized in collaboration with Oregon State University, Corvallis, and the University of Warsaw the fieldtrip offers a space for a transatlantic dialog among students from different disciplines that is accompanied by institutional and cultural visits as well as workshops at the respective symposium destinations.
