Special Guest Lectures

The American Studies Center strives to introduce students to the wider academic world of American studies by inviting special guests. They join us from foreign academic institutions, diplomatic missions, governmental agencies, and non-governmental organizations to share their knowledge and passion related to American history, politics, and culture. You can learn all about the past and upcoming meetings and special guest lectures organized at the ASC on this page.
