The spring semester class of History/German
290: Berlin: Grandeur and Decadence. The Reinvention of a
European Metropolis will have the opportunity to explore the
subject with their own eyes and feet.
Josef K. Glowa, assistant professor of German,
will escort a student excursion March 1-10. However, a number
of slots are available to the rest of the campus community,
including faculty and staff.
The tour will incorporate culture, politics,
and entertainment. The group will visit the Bundestag (Germanys
parliament) and choose among such cultural possibilities as
the Deutschoper and the Berlin Philharmonic, whose hall, the
Philharmonie, is one of the worlds finest (and most
unusual) concert venues. Glowa says he is flexible and can
adjust the itinerary according to the interests of the group.
The travelers will fly from Newark International
Airport and stay in modestly priced student housing
or hostels. Glowa estimates the cost of the entire trip, including
meals, transportation, and museum admissions, at $750.
He would like a commitment (and a down payment)
by the end of today, December 4. Stop by his office at 412
Comenius Hall, call Ext. 1395, or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
