Content:

In a turbulent election year, Americans have debated the direction of their country, worried about the state of democracy, weathered primaries and debates and will decide on November 5 between two unpopular candidates. The outcome of the election will also impact Germany and Europe and is therefore closely watched and scrutinized. Reason enough, to take a closer look at the U.S. election system and its challenges, the development of the Republican Party and its relationship to democracy as well as as the role the U.S. media plays. In this seminar for teachers, we will discuss structural and societal issues and developments of the American election cycle and their relevance for the classroom

Discuss these and many more questions with us and experts in our seminar.
