We will discuss the importance of what is shaping up to be an historic election. The latest polls indicate that a record six political parties could win seats in the German parliament, including the radical right-wing party Alternative for Germany. Professors Ela Gezen (German Studies) and Jon Berndt Olsen (History) will host the event and provide social and historical context while the results come in. We’ll have food and soft drinks as well!
