Karneval is fast approaching, and the German Club has planned an outing to celebrate: a dinner and ball!

On Saturday, February 26th, we will head to a German restaurant in northern Chicago (Laschet's Inn). Afterwards, we will go to the Maskenball put on by the Dankhaus!

Theme

Festival Neue Literatur

Nov. 12 - 13 - 14, 2021

I invite you to participate in the 11th annual Festival Neue Literatur, "the first and only festival to spotlight German-language and American fiction". The festival is organized in NYC by a consortium of cultural institutions in NYC, but it is being held this year online, and participation is free of charge. This year's theme is Turn and Face the Strange: "The books featured this year explore the strangeness, uncanniness, and eeriness that sometimes lurks just beneath the surface of daily life and that can break out full force in times of change—whether large or small, internal or external, real or imagined, spatial or temporal."

This year the festival is featuring six celebrated, prize-winning authors with highly varied and international backgrounds, including the University of Chicago's very own Isabel Fargo Cole (BA 1995):

Anna Baar (Austria): Die Farbe des Granatapfels ("The Color of Pomegranate")
Isabel Fargo Cole (Germany): Das Gift der Bienen ("Bee Venom/The Poison of Bees")
Judith Keller (Switzlerand): Die Fragwürdigen ("The Questionable Ones")
Benjamin Quaderer (Liechtenstein): Für immer die Alpen ("The Alps Forever")
Sasha Marianna Salzmann (Germany): Ausser Sich ("Beside Oneself")
Ivna Žic (Switzerland): Die Nachkommenden ("Those Who Come Later")

See more detailed information as well as registration instructions at http://festivalneueliteratur.org/festival/theme

Here at the University of Chicago I will host a follow-up meeting on Monday, Nov. 16th (time and place TBD), where we will discuss any of the events that you attended. The festival has an ambitious program, and it's unlikely that any of our busy students will be able to attend everything. I recommend prioritizing these first two events:

1. Words With Writers - Friday, November 12 at 12:00 PM

Selected students from Columbia University, Rutgers University, New York University and the University of Chicago -- including our very own James Korzenik (BA Germanic Studies, 2021)!! -- take on FNL authors in a lightning round of literary interviews.


2. The Author's Voice - Friday, November 12 at 6:00 PM

The six German-language authors of Festival Neue Literatur pair up with past participants of Festival Neue Literatur to give a sampling from their work in both the original and English-language translation, providing a taste of new writing from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.

Please rsvp to [email protected] if you plan to attend any events of the festival and participate in the follow-up meeting. I will work with those who rsvp to find a time on Monday, Nov. 15th, that works for everyone.

That weekend there will also be three panel discussions, all of which will be available online:

3. Poisoned Roots - Saturday, November 13 at 1:00 PM

The after-effects of war—hot or cold—reverberate through generations. This panel will explore how experiences of war shape even generations and societies who believe they’ve been spared. This is nothing new: as Homer warned, “Beware the toils of war . . . the huge dragnet sweeping up the world.” Can literature build antibodies by bringing those toxins to light?

4. Who are You Calling Strange?: How Translation Can Challenge Established Norms and Narratives - Saturday, November 13 at 4:00 PM

The festival’s signature translation event returns to explore how translation can refine and even redefine dominant historical and socio-political norms and narratives. Translation Pairings: I. Sawako Nakayasu and Katrine Jensen II. Jill Schoolman and Archipelago Translators Peter Wortsman, Mary Ann Newman, and Tess Lewis III. Isabel Fargo Cole and Jennifer Croft


5. Alternate Realities - Sunday, November 14 at 1:00 PM

How can fiction help us question our assumptions about what seems most familiar? This panel will explore the way literature can sharpen our sense of realit(ies) by unsettling us. If Wittgenstein was right that the limits of our language are the limits of our world, how can we expand those limits?

*DEADLINE TONIGHT*

Curious to explore a career as a German teacher and find a meaningful job while pursuing what you love? Eager to polish up your German skills next summer at Middlebury’s German School? The Goethe-Institute is offering scholarships in support of German language acquisition for instructors in the SPARK for German program (see attached flyer for more details). The scholarship could be a great way of advancing your German skills.

SPARK is a program designed to reach K-12 students and teach them German. UChicago students create lesson plans and will soon begin working with students at Kenwood Academy, and possibly beyond! Through thematic learning, the program aims to provide access to German language instruction through face to face meetings and lots of fun activities (of our own design). And of course, please reach out to Prof. Nicole Burgoyne ([email protected]) or Peter Camporeale ([email protected]) to learn more about the SPARK program and how you can become involved!

The Goethe-Institut in Chicago is looking for volunteers for a ten-week program in the fall of 2019. Participants will receive $350 to work with a program designed to teach children ages 8-12 basic German and science concepts simultaneously as part of their German + STEM in After-School Programs: The German Digital Kinderuniversity, which will take place between October and December 2019.

Here's the Goethe-Institut's blurb for the program! If you're interested, contact Nicole Burgoyne ([email protected]) from the UChicago German Department.

STEM and German are a winning combination: German is considered, after English, one of the key languages used in science professionally and in research. In the US and Germany there is genuine demand for STEM professionals, so students combining STEM and language competencies have access to a wealth of academic and professional opportunities. Bringing STEM and German language learning together is at the heart of the Goethe-Institut’s STEM initiatives.

This fall, the Goethe-Institut, Germany’s cultural and language institute, will work together with schools at elementary and middle school level to offer free after-school programs in German and STEM. These programs are based on the resources of the German Digital Kinderuniversity, an educational project introducing STEM-topics and basic German language at the same time.

Our selected trainers from high schools and universities will present these afternoon sessions on a weekly basis for up to 10 weeks in the fall of 2019.

We are currently looking university students with a good command of German who are interested in participating in this project as trainers.

What we offer:
- a lump-sum honorarium of $350 for up to 10 after-school sessions of ‘German and STEM' for students between the ages of 8 and 12 years between Oct. and Dec. 2019
- introduction to the modules and resources of the German Digital Kinderuniversity
- didactic training and guidance by the Goethe-Institut Chicago
- an opportunity to gather teaching experience with kids
- a certificate of participation
What we ask for:

- motivated students with a good command of the German language, affinity with STEM and interest in working with kids at elementary and middle schools
- commitment to conducting up to 10 after-school sessions at a school - commitment to attending the (online) introductory seminar in September
- commitment to evaluating this program by the end of 2019.

"Kuhle Wampe or Who Owns the World"

A Weimar period masterpiece, in which an avant-garde, fragmented narrative is used to tell the story of a working-class family in Berlin in 1931.

Survival is difficult, with massive unemployment in the wake of the Great Depression. After Anni's brother commits suicide in despair, her family finds itself forced to move to Kuhle Wampe, a lakeside camp on the outskirts of Berlin, now home to increasing numbers of unemployed. When Anni's relationship with Franz ends, she moves back to Berlin and gets involved in the workers' youth movement.

Dear UChicago German Club!

Have you worked in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland? As part of my efforts to develop a new German language course I'd like to interview you about your experiences. My main interest is your use of German vs. English in the workplace. Based on your input I will develop assignments and activities to prepare students for real world situations.

Please email me at [email protected],

We enjoyed our time with UChicago's German Club performing for and teaching dances to participants! Thanks so much for having us.
Hallo Leute! I'm Emily and I work for a Toronto based company named Lokafy. We connect local people in different cities with tourists who want to have someone who speaks their language show them around the city. We don't look for professional tour guides, just people who speak different languages and want to have contact with people from other countries. You can know a little bit more about us in our website.
Right now we are recruiting German Speakers in Chicago. So, if you'll like to practice your language skills in your spare time while showing Germans your city and making some extra income, please leave dm me and I'll have the company send you all the information.
GIVE IT TO ME, baby, aha aha!
