“Ein kompromissloser Musiker, der mit bestätigtem Optimismus musiziert. Nicht, um davon zu leben, sondern, weil er dafür lebt.”

“Dass die Folksongs nie ins Kitschige abdriften, hat auch mit Stephen Burchs Gesang zu tun, der alles andere als glatt ist. So zittrig, ja, brüchig kommt er oft daher, dass Conor Obersts Stil von den Bright Eyes dagegen schon fast geschliffen wirkt.”

“Ein Singer-Songwriter ist immer auch Poet. Und Burch ist ein ganz besonderer.”

Dear DBG Dresden Members & Friends,

For our March 2015 Open Meeting we invite you to join us for a special guest talk by a member of the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft Oldenburg!
John Goodyear will give a talk on “The First World War: A Family Affair” and will be looking back at that conflict through his own British family’s experience, sharing some of the memorabilia and stories that have been passed down to him.
So come along, bring other interested parties, listen to this personal account of the war that “changed everything” in Britain – and decide for yourself how it came that the First World War took up such a large space in British collective memory!
John Goodyear studied German in Birmingham and London, and is Director of Studies at the Academy of English in Oldenburg, and Vice Chairman of the Deutsch-Britische Gesellschaft in Oldenburg. He has been involved in Anglo-German cultural relations for some time now, giving talks on Anglo-German cultural themes in Germany and the UK, but also in the United States or Pakistan.

The talk will be given in English, followed by a discussion in either English or German.

Entry is free, all are welcome.

A beautiful book, a classic already.
Christopher Boone, the 15 year old narrator, discovers his neighbour’s dog in her garden, with a fork stuck into it. As a big fan of the Sherlock Holmes novels, he sets himself the goal to find the murderer, but what he will find out, turns his world upside down. The quest for truth, which in Christopher’s world should be a straightforward number to handle, turns out to be a discovery of adult hypocrisy and inadequacy – and it’s so touching because there is no black and white, just frightening grey.
Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!

Tomorrow, Valentine’s Day, one of my first ever guests will hold his wedding reception at England, England, wooohooo! Thus, we will be closing at 4pm already, sorry folks!
Morgen, am Valentinstag, wird einer unserer ersten Gäste Hochzeit bei uns feiern. Darum werden wir, leider für alle anderen, schon um 16 Uhr schließen.

Dear Deutsch Britische Gesellschaft members and friends,

We invite you to our February 2015 Open Meeting on Wednesday, 4 February at 19:00.
Dr Francis Jarman, Berlin, wil be giving a talk on “Culture and Identity – or, Why Intercultural Communication Matters”.
People are committing murder to avenge insults to their cultural values; while others are taking to the streets in thousands because they believe that their culture is in danger. But what is this “cultural identity” that is so precious, and so controversial? And is conflict between members of different cultures inevitable?
Concepts from Intercultural Communication may help to make the issues easier to understand.
Francis Jarman has taught or lectured in eighteen countries around the world, and was a founding member of the Institute of Intercultural Communication at the University of Hildesheim.

The talk will be given in English, follwed by a discussion in either English or German.
We are looking forward to seeing you!
