I can't wait to see this smile.gif My local University http://www.gsu.edu Is having a symposium/presentation on "Re-Reading Rammstein". Looking at the cultural importance of this seminal band in the context of "Neue Deutsche Hart"

I'm going to try to video tape this. It's going to be very interesting to see a band like Rammstein put under the academic microscope and analyzed to the nth degree. I"m really glad to see German Music becoming more and more important globally in terms of listenership and in terms of it's impact on culture and now Academia. Here are the Details.


In connection with next week's Southeast German Studies Workshop hosted
by GSU, two talks will be held at GSU that may be of interest to some of
you.

"Re-Reading Rammstein*: Neue Deutsche Härte and (Trans)National
Identity"
by Corinna Kahnke, Duke University
Wednesday, Feb. 23, 5:30-7:00pm, in GCB 718

*A note on content: Songs, videos, and performances by the band
Rammstein include explicit material (obscenity, violence, nudity, and
sexuality). Please attend at your discretion.

Should you be interested in the program for the rest of the Southeast
German Studies Workshop, which is open to the public, you can access it

It's well deserved, those guys have taken the risk of doing pretty different things

Well said wink.gif It's great to see intellectual interest in such a primal band.
