Baden-Württemberg Seminar

Each spring and fall, the Heidelberg Center for American Studies invites distinguished scholars, public policy experts, journalists, writers, and artists to its Baden-Württemberg Seminar. The program was initiated in the spring of 2007 as a lecture series with fellows of the American Academy in Berlin. In the summer of 2009, the Baden-Württemberg seminar extended its base to include other distinguished speakers. Participants present their current work, discuss issues of transatlantic interest or read from their writings at selected institutions throughout the state.

Baden-Württemberg’s profound interest in the United States is reflected in many of its cultural, political, and economic institutions, its corporations, museums, and libraries. A number of them cooperate with the Heidelberg Center for American Studies to make the Baden-Württemberg Seminar possible.

Coordination: Dr. Anja Schüler
