German Forum Talk Series

In 2004, the German Department launched the highly successful German Forum talk series (formerly known as the Brown Bag lectures). The series, organized by Professor Martha Helfer, provides an informal forum for faculty and students to present work in progress. Attendance at these events is high throughout the year, as the German Studies community at Rutgers enjoyed "food for the mind and food for the body."

Look for upcoming German Froum Talks on the event calendar.
