ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.—"From the National to the Global and Back? The Role of the United Nations as a supranational Institution" is the topic of the second annual Bard/Humboldt student symposium to be held on Friday, March 12, and Saturday, March 13. Free and open to the public, the symposium is a joint project of Bard College and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and is sponsored by the Institute for International Liberal Education, Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program, and Humboldt University’s Institute for English and American Studies and Office of International Affairs.
Twelve students from Humboldt and four students from Bard will present papers during the symposium that explores whether the United Nations can remain effective as an international organization or if there is a need for a more supranational authority. The students will approach the topic from both the German and American points of view to shed light on the continuing transatlantic dialogue.
The program is organized by faculty and students from both Bard College and Humboldt University: professors Susan Bernofsky (Bard), Reinhard Isensee (HU Berlin), Philipp Kneis (HU Berlin), Janine Ludwig (HU Berlin), and students Bert Bobock (HU Berlin), Emily Steinberg (Bard), and Valon Xharra (Bard).
Friday’s session will begin at 1:00 p.m. in room 115 of the Olin Language Center; Saturday’s will begin at 10:30 a.m. in room 102 of the F. W. Olin Humanities Building. For further information, visit the website www2.hu-berlin.de/amerika/projects/un/index.html or call 845-758-7332.
