Transatlantic Tandem Talk: Urban Spaces and German Traces: Immigration and Jewish Life in the United States 

Oct 13, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT / 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM CEST | online

For centuries now, immigrants have come to the United States to start a new life. In this virtual Transatlantic Tandem Talk, Prof. Dr. Anke Ortlepp, Professor of North American History at the University of Cologne, and Prof. Lila Corwin Berman, Professor of History at Temple University, will discuss what this means for these individuals’ respective culture and language, where immigrant groups settled, and how they maintained their identity through institutions and philanthropy. Is there still German life in New York City - and what does Jewish urban history look like?
