The spring 2014 semester at the American Academy in Berlin concluded on the evening of June 5, ending a tremendous season of lectures and presentations by our fellows and distinguished visitors. The Academy's public program will begin again in September, when the fall 2014 Berlin Prize recipients take up residence at the Hans Arnhold Center. The traditional Fellows Presentation will take place in mid-September. Please check back this summer to learn of the fall 2014 program of talks, readings, screenings, lectures, and special events, including a smattering of events surrounding the Academy's twentieth anniversary.
