Australian Studies Online

In 2015 Prof. Dany Adone and Prof. Beate Neumeier of the English Department at the University of Cologne launched a Germany-wide network initiative to formalise a collaboration between German universities for the promotion and implementation of an Australian Studies online programme. They organised two preparatory meetings at the University of Cologne in 2015 and 2016 with participants from neighbour universities in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, namely Bonn, Düsseldorf and Duisburg-Essen, as well as the universities of Mainz, Potsdam, Stuttgart, and Trier.

We are planning to launch the first joint online course, an introduction to Australian Studies from the perspective of a variety of different disciplines including literary and cultural studies, linguistics, history, geography, anthropology, biology, economics and law, in the winter semester of 2017-2018.
