DGC: Goethe Symposium
The Dallas Goethe Center will mark its 50th anniversary with a symposium honoring Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Scholarly contributions on aspects of Goethe's work and impact will be presented. Receptions, musical performances, and a movie screening will provide not only an attractive frame but lots of opportunities to meet our panelists from around the world and other likeminded people who share an interest in German culture.
Panels, discussions, Friday night reception and movie screening are free and open to the public. Join us for the whole symposium or just pick and choose.
