Learning Services Building German Studies Conference Room 346 1512 E First Street Tucson, AZ 85721

The Department of German Studies is fortunate to welcome Prof. Renate Riedner (of the Herder Institut, University of Leipzig) as our German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) Guest Professor for Spring 2014. Prof. Riedner already enjoys close scholarly and institutional ties with Arizona's German Studies community. With her colleague at Leipzig Prof. Michael Dobstadt, Prof. Riedner has developed a model of foreign langauge teaching / learning called "Didaktik der Literarizität / Didactics of Literaricity", which she will share with us at Friday's discussion. Please bring your questions for Prof. Riedner about her work, the University of Leipzig, the German as a Foreign Language profession, and her first impressions of the University of Arizona.
