NEW: Discussion Group Special

  • US People, Politics, Presidency
  • Alyssa Niccolini
  • Social Activity

The USA is undergoing a difficult time: Growing splits in society, heated discussions on race and inequality, harsh election campaigns, climate change with more fires and hurricanes. And all this is happening in a politically highly charged atmosphere. In this discussion group special we will discuss these issues and others in depth – with the help of newspaper articles, TV interviews, commentaries and the like. An advanced level of English will be needed.

Discussions will be led by Alyssa Niccolini. Alyssa has a doctoral degree in English Education from Columbia University, taught English at high school and university level and is an active member of academic organizations focusing on humanities, gender and education.

Meetings take place in the DAI library and are free of charge. To ensure in-depth discussions, the group is limited to 12 participants. Please sign up with: Jutta Wagner,

We welcome spirited debates!
