This lecture is the keynote address for the opening of the exhibit “German Iowa and the Global Midwest,” created by the University of Iowa and on display at the Max Kade Institute, April 5–27, 2018. A reception will follow the presentation.
Several German alumni in different UW-Madison campus positions will explain their degree work; their positions; and their career paths. After short presentations, attendees will break into rotating small groups to discuss with alumni. This event is intended to help graduates explore university career paths beyond traditional faculty appointments.
