Public programs facilitate dialogue between academics and professionals, informing scholarship and strengthening practice.
Multiple day conferences, year-long colloquia, individual lectures, “conversations” between individuals, hands-on workshops, and “brown bag” talks featuring our graduate students all contribute to the remarkable richness of MSP offerings.
Video recordings of many MSP lectures are archived for viewing in our Media Gallery.

Chronopolis: Time and Urban Space – a German Studies Graduate Student Conference
October 30, 2015 - October 31, 2015
Combining Reinhart Koselleck’s notion that time is conceived in spatial metaphors with Henri Lefebvre’s premise that space is socially produced, this conference invites papers that investigate how cities and time mutually determine and reflect each other. While the focus is on Germanspeaking cities, we also welcome approaches that connect time in the metropolis to international frameworks and consider the rise of global cities and global metropolitan networks.
