Help support and expand CGES in-person and virtual events

  • CGES has made a name for its high-quality  interactive webinars that address current developments in Germany and Europe, bringing people together from both sides of the Atlantic with experts to learn more about a variety of issues, including antisemitism and racism in Germany and Europe, contemporary German literature and film, among many others
  •  CGES has also made a special effort to promote awareness of the climate crisis. 
  • Since the pandemic started, CGES has reached thousands of people in over 34 countries with the CGES online webinar series. We plan to continue engaging through virtual content, but we also aim to increase our in-person events to help bring the Brandeis community and wider Boston area friends together again post pandemic.
