The first Wittenberg American Studies Summer School took place from July 31st to August 4th 2006. An event of "great historical significance," as co-organizer Prof. Holger Kersten of Magdeburg University referred to it, the Summer School was attended by thirty university students from all over Germany. The summer school was a wonderful opportunity to meet other students interested in American Studies, to discuss current events and themes associated with the United States, and to have a good time. more
