The final lecture in the Fall 2012 Faculty Lecture Series, "It Says Here": Social Movements in West German Print Media, 1967-1972, by Christina Gerhardt (LLEA / German), will be held on Monday, November 5 at 3:30 p.m. in Hamilton Library Room 301.
Gerhardt is Assistant Professor of German at UH Mānoa where she teaches courses in 20th and 21st-century German literature, culture and film.
In this lecture, Gerhardt presents and analyzes print media coverage of social movements and terrorist groups in West Germany between 1967 and 1970 and 1972. Her talk considers both corporate media, in particular the newspapers of the Springer press, and in leftist publications, such as Agit 883, revealing how their political concerns - expressed in content and form - reflect, intervene in and shape perceptions of the social movements.
The Faculty Lecture Series is presented by Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, Office of Research Relations, & the UH Mānoa Library. Now in the seventh year, the Faculty Lecture Series provides faculty the opportunity to share their current research with the academic community.
