What Just Happened: US Election Coffee Chats
In the weeks leading up to the U.S. elections, the tension within the US seemed to build: No day went by without a big news announcement. At the same time, with everything happening in the world right now, various side stages seem to ultimately affect the outcome of November 3rd: the Covid-19 pandemic, the Black Lives Matter movement, Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing and the recent Presidential Debates are only a few that come to mind.
The race to the White House and the outcome of the election with its political purview is currently being discussed and commented on all over the world. Together with you, we want to talk about the outcome of November 3rd, take a look at the election’s political implications, and explore how the result will affect our transatlantic relationship.
The event will begin with a small introductory question that is going to be answered by all our six speakers in short statements. This will pave the way to broader discussions that will be held in smaller breakout-sessions.
Similar to the very popular coffee chat format that we have established during prior German American Conferences, we would like to host two rounds of small discussions in break-out sessions. Each time, ten attendees will get the chance to talk with one speaker each in a more intimate and private setting. We hope to promote a discussion amongst students and professionals from the U.S., Germany and other countries about the national and transatlantic implications of the outcome of the US election.
Attendance for this event is limited, and registration will be available on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
