2018 Gerda Henkel Lecture Tour

The Gerda Henkel Lecture Tours brings German historians to the West Coast where they present their research at up to four different universities with the goal to facilitate the general dialogue between German historians and their colleagues in the U.S. and Canadian west. The lecture tours are coordinated by GHI West, the Pacific Regional Office of the Germany Historical Institute, Washington DC, in cooperation with the Gerda Henkel Foundation. The 2018 lecturers are Uwe Lübken (LMU Munich) and Martina Kessel (Bielefeld University).
