Faculty Seminar - Organizational Details
The 2017 seminar will take
place from June 9 to June 19. The seminar is designed for
faculty members, scholars and
experts who have specialized in International, European and German
studies. The program is heavily scheduled with academic and analytical
lectures by specialists from Berlin universities, government agencies
and other public or private institutions in Berlin as well as with site
visits. Each session is conducted in English and followed by
discussion. Apart from the sightseeing tours included during the
program, there is not much free time for tourist activities. It is
suggested that those who want to add tourist experiences independently
make arrangements for a pre- or post-seminar stay in Berlin.

Berlin is a big city with an almost perfect public
transportation system. Nevertheless, some moderate walking is involved
to get from meeting places to public transportation stops and vice
versa. Thus, seminar participants should be in good health and have at
most minor limits on physical mobility.
Seminar participants receive extensive pre-departure orientation
materials, including a newsletter, bibliographies of recommended
readings; information on the seminar’s leadership, host institution,
and lecturers; a detailed program itinerary; and safety, health, and
cultural information on Berlin and the sites to be visited.
