In collaboration with DAI Nürnberg, we are pleased to welcome

Prof. Larry I. Palmer,
former visiting professor from the United States at the Law Faculty at FAU Erlangen, and professor at Cornell University

Virtual Meet the Author event

Tuesday, June 22, 2021
at 6 P.M. (CET).

In Scholarship Boy Palmer reflects on his experiences as a young black boy growing up far away from home, learning to fit into a white world without becoming estranged from his closely-knit family. Palmer’s journey from being the “next-to-the-baby” of his family into adulthood reveals the personal and often hidden costs of cultural migration.

In an interview conducted by Prof. Dr. Andreas Falke, director of the German-American Institute Nürnberg, and Matthias Koeplin, Regional Chapter Chair Northern Bavaria, American Chamber of Commerce Germany followed by a Q&A session, American systems of higher education and different perspectives on race will be discussed.

You will receive a link to the virtual discussion upon registration with info@amerikahaus-nrw.de until June 21st at the latest. If you have any questions for the author, please feel free to send them in with your registration.
