    From the Past to the Future: Why is Germany Doing So Well Today?

    Many countries have struggled to survive the economic crisis in recent years, but Germany has fared far better than most. Based on world records of economic success since 1949, Germany is booming ahead. There are many reasons for this phenomenon including basic cultural and economic conditions in Germany’s long history since the Middle Ages. In fact, the past has helped to shape future developments, with one eye backwards, and the other eye turned forward. Learn how Germany’s past perspectives can help us understand modern conditions. Presented by Dr. Albrecht Classen, University Distinguished Professor of German Studies.

    Lecture will be in the Kiva Room on the first floor of the UA Student Memorial Union, NE side of the building.

    This lecture is cosponsored by the UA Alumni Association as part of the UA Homecoming Collegiate Showcase. For information about this year’s Homecoming festivities, see: http://humanities.arizona.edu/homecoming
