In collaboration with the Hobart & William Smith College, the German Department has invited guest speaker Emina Mušanović for its Brown Bag “Heimat after Belonging – Engaging with Narratives of Displacement.”
Students from various Departments gathered for an interdisciplinary dialog in our Kade Center to explore what “Heimat” (“home”) means, especially in a world where there is a constant change of location, people and emotions. The discussion started in the context of a literary example and addressed contemporary discourses of “Belonging” in a time where millions of refugees are confronted with these questions: “What is home, when and where do I belong?”
This Brown Bag was held in anticipation of the second annual Spring Semester Symposium, “Narratives of Displacement”, by the German Area Studies Program of Hobart & William Smith College in the spirit of academic collaboration among the colleges of the NY6 Liberal Arts Consortium and Cornell University.
