American Academy Alumni Seminar
Politics – Culture – Identity
Since the American Academy in Berlin’s fellowship program began, in fall 1998, over 450 scholars, writers, artists, and composers have come to the Hans Arnhold Center for a semester of independent research and creative work—from academic monographs and essays to new novels, paintings, and compositions. In the spirit of keeping this intellectual network alive, we have invited a group of distinguished scholars and artists to examine broader questions of identity politics. The first session will deal the relation of identity politics and democracy. The second session will address the interplay of social resistance, the arts, and identity politics.
