A thematic focus of the Symposium will be on the diverse expressions of German culture in America, past and present, including topics related to this country’s German backgrounds in texts, music, and visual culture, as well in education, religion, politics, journalism, commerce, and other areas. There will also be presentations that focus on more specifically linguistic topics, and structural and sociolinguistic aspects of heritage varieties of German in America.
