Populism and Democracy in Germany and Central Europe
Emily Schultheis spent two years as an Institute of Current World Affairs (ICWA) fellow, exploring the rise of the Alternative for Germany Party (AfD) and other far-right groups across Central Europe. Schultheis will speak at the Goethe-Institut on Thursday, December 2, at 6:00pm, about different tensions within German society — from an enduring East-West divide, to the decline of industrial communities in the populous Ruhr region, to the fraught debates over memory culture and patriotism — that have helped lay the groundwork for a party like the AfD.

Cultural Resistance: Visualizing a Nuclear-Free World
How do we advocate for an end to nuclear power and nuclear weapons? Beyond research papers and speeches, articles and fact sheets, and protests on the streets, can a painter, a fashion designer, and a creative performance director convey the same urgency about our nuclear peril? We think that the answer is ‘yes’! We cordially invite you to join our conversation on Tuesday, December 7, from 6:30pm to 8:00pm Eastern Standard Time (US), to explore how the visual and performing arts can play a role in advocating for a nuclear-free world.
