Freie Universität Berlin European Studies Program (FU-BEST) proudly presents its first free digital public lecture series! Every Wednesday for the duration of the Fall Semester 2020, FU-BEST will feature one of 12 subject course lectures in English as well as one of three live German language sessions online.
Each month is dedicated to a specific theme (see schedule online and attached as pdf) which will be dealt with each Wednesday by different FU-BEST instructors from the perspective of their respective discipline (or German language level in the month of December). Viewers will thus be able to explore various facets of overarching issues and themes relevant to European Studies in Berlin and Germany today, in line with the interdisciplinary approach of our study abroad program.
For more information, please visit www.fubest.org/online.
All sessions are approx. 45 mins. long. The subject course lectures (September through November) are recorded in advance and remain online after their premiere. The interactive German language sessions (December) are presented live (please register online to receive an access code for the live sessions).
Featured disciplines include history, literature, politics, law, architecture, business, philosophy, environmental studies, and many more; German language levels in the live sessions range from Beginner to Advanced. All lectures will offer insights into the instructors’ semester-long regular courses within the FU-BEST Program, their learning objectives and guiding research questions, and the way in which they integrate Berlin as a cultural and historical location into the semester.
To complement these lively insights into FU-BEST’s academics, we will offer a series of informational webinars for staff, faculty, and students interested in knowing more about the program as a whole. These webinars will be held (per date!) at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Berlin time on October 15, November 12 and December 10. The links needed to join those webinars can be found here.
