Once again, the Goethe-Institut Chicago, in collaboration with the Federal Reserve Bank and the French Consulate, is organizing a conference about current trends and issues pertaining to European and German economics. This year’s conference will take place from July 17 – 19, 2013 at the Federal Reserve Bank in Chicago. The event is made possible by a generous grant from the Federal Republic of Germany.

This international conference will bring together world class academics, economic experts and diplomatic representatives to discuss the current economic situation in Europe, its global ramifications, and possible solutions to critical issues. Among the speakers are Dr. Henning Meyer (LSE), Professor Mark Blyth (Brown University), and Valerie Rouxel-Laxton, (EEAS Washington), just to name a few.

The goal of the conference is to provide vital background information to American teachers of French, German, Social Studies, and Economics so that they are well prepared to explain the European phenomenon to their students.

Registration ends on June 28, 2013.
