Congratulations to Beverly Weber for the successful conference Diversity, Decolonization, and German Curriculum!

From March 11 to March 14, the German Program was the virtual host for DDGC 2021: A Virtual Gathering, which focused on antiracism, antiblack racism, white supremacy, and Black resistance in German studies. The conference was organized by Professor Adrienne Merritt (St. Olaf College) and Professor Beverly Weber (UC Boulder). Over 115 attendees attended the conference, which included plenary speakers Professor Tiffany Florvil (University of New Mexico) and Kira Thurman (University of Michigan), as well as workshops on teaching in an age of white supremacy, the use of historical documents in teaching about Black Germans, and rethinking the German studies curriculum.
