FAU Newcomers’ Club

 

Find new friends with FAU

Are you a visiting researcher or new employee of FAU / Universitätsklinikum Erlangen? Or did you come to the region along with your partner who works for FAU and are now trying to settle in? You are not a newcomer at all, but interested in meeting new people?

FAU’s Newcomers’ Club is a platform for newcomers from all countries and their families. The Club aims to be a starting point for joint activities, such as toddlers’ groups, sports / games / arts / literature meetings, excursions and conversation groups. Join us every second Thursday for a talk about different aspects of the region and start making plans with other participants over coffee and tea.

Talk and discussion: Football and Contemporary History in GermanyThe connection between sports, history and politics might not strike everybody’s eye on the first glimpse, but in fact they are intricately intertwined. For example, recent discussions about the exclusion of the Russian team from the Olympics have way more to it than a mere debate about sports. When we are talking about sports in Germany, football is definitely the most popular one, so it is not too surprising that in German history, developments in football grounds reflected the political currents of the respective times, but also gave room for opposition against hegemonic bodies of thought. Did you for example know that playing football in the early 20th century was considered “non-German” and therefore became kind of a deviant act? Together, we will slither through contemporary German history have a look on and off the pitch, on the terraces and current political implications.
