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.
German Day at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is now in its 29th year. Typically anywhere from 500 to 700 students taking German at middle schools and high schools from across the state give their best effort and have fun competing in spelling, poetry, Pictionary, charades, skits, music, and poster events. Each year features a different theme, which is reflected in students’ skits and posters. This year’s theme is: “Wie Deutsch mein Leben verändert hat!”
