Freedom Without Walls: A Panel on the Berlin Wall
Nearly twenty years after the fall of the Berlin wall, German journalists and scholars reflect both on that pivotal moment in the nation’s and the world’s history and on the changes that have — and have not — taken place as a result of reunification. Panelists include Dieter Dettke, visiting fellow at the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies; Thomas Kleine-Brockhoff, Senior Director for Policy Programs at the German Marshall Fund of the United States and former Washington bureau chief of Die Zeit, Germany’s intellectual weekly; Olivia Schoeller, Washington correspondent for the Berliner Zeitung, the largest broadsheet newspaper in the German capital; and moderator Marion Deshmukh, an associate professor in Mason’s Department of History and Art History. Sponsored by the German Embassy Freedom Without Walls Program, and George Mason University’s annual Fall for the Book.
This event will take place Sunday, November 22, 2009 from 1:30 PM until 2:30 PM at George Mason University’s Johnson Center Cinema. For more information see the Fall for the Book website.
