The German Stanford Association invites Ivy Circle members to “I am not your Negro” on Feb 18, 2021

In honor of Black History Month, Stanford is excited to announce a virtual screening of I Am Not Your Negro followed by a conversation between two Germany-based scholars of African American studies, Cedric Essi and Philip Crawford. Their discussion will explore Baldwin’s contributions and legacy on both sides of the Atlantic. I Am Not Your Negro is a film by Raoul Peck about the history of racism in the United States told through the life and work of James Baldwin, and our goal for the event is to celebrate the contributions of James Baldwin, Medgar Evans, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcom X to human rights, social justice, and diversity. On Feb. 18, we will begin screening at 18:00 CET, with the virtual conversation following immediately after the film from 19:45-20:15.

A CONVERSATION WITH JAN-WERNER MUELLER on Sep 21, 2020

MUNICH DIALOGUES ON DEMOCRACY PRESENTS:

A CONVERSATION WITH JAN-WERNER MUELLER

Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences, Professor of Politics, Princeton University

Trump is a symptom, not the cause of the trouble experienced by the US. The talk takes us back to basic democratic principles and argues that we need to understand what has gone wrong with the two institutions which, ever since the nineteenth century, have been considered crucial for making representative democracy work: political parties and free media. A number of concrete ways to rethink and re-design these institutions are offered.
