Lecture by PD Dr. Lerg at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver)

On April 5, Dr. Lerg will give a lecture at the University of British Colombia on "Broad Brush Strokes and Fine Lines: Courtroom Drawing and the Visual History of the 20th Century."
The lecture is part of the UBC History Colloquium Series.
Those interested can attend via Zoom. According to German time, the lecture will take place from 21:00-22:30. To register, click here.

At the end of the summer semester 2022, Prof. Wala's work as a university lecturer at Ruhr-Universität will come to an end. However, he will remain at RUB for another year as a senior researcher.
Until the chair for North American history is occupied again in 2023, colleagues will offer courses that have a connection to the US.
In order to provide students in Module II with an introduction to the history of the US during this transitional period, Prof. Wala will also offer the lecture "Von britischen Kolonien zur Weltmacht: Die USA im transatlantischen Raum" once again in the winter semester 2022/2023, which was recorded as a podcast in the summer semester 2020.
Further information can be found on moodle. From the beginning of the winter semester, the recordings and the slides of the lecture can be downloaded there.
