A program hosted in partnership with Wunderbar Together and the World Affairs Councils of America.

Johann JK Reusch is an Associate Professor of History and Global Studies at the University of Washington Tacoma. He has published on German sociocultural Issues and nation building. Currently, he is working collaboratively with German researchers on a project assessing the effects of public education on social transformation in Germany.

This talk will address the social and cultural challenges faced by Germany at the end of the Merkel chancellorship, such as the rise of populist and extremist subcultures, deepening parallel societies, and failing refugee and immigrant integration. Following his informal presentation, the program will move  to a ‘fireside chat’ format, with WACT board member Etga Ugur, also a UWT professor, posing questions. Participants will also get a chance to ask questions during the hour long program.

While this event is free and open to the public, your donations keep our organization moving forward in our mission of fostering global engagement in the Tacoma/South Sound region. Please donate to us today.
