Dr. Mirko Hall delivered a paper on the history of punkademia in German Studies at the annual conference of the German Studies Association in Portland, Oregon. He also provided the response to a panel on the political aesthetics of German punk in a global perspective.
Dr. Hall and Professor Margaret Moore led a delegation of the college’s award-winning Model League team to the Morocco International Model Arabic League Conference at the Université International de Rabat. The conference concluded with an unforgettable 4-day desert safari to Merzouga, Ouarzazate, and Marrakesh.
Dr. Hall received a sixth—and positive—review of his 2016 co-edited volume, Beyond No Future: Cultures of German Punk, in last summer’s edition of Volume!: The French Journal of Popular Music Studies.
