Description

I am looking for Arabic speaking students (preferably undergraduate) who study German language and/or contemporary drama. The Virtual Exchange would bring them together with undergraduate students of Arabic Studies in Göttingen (Germany). The students would would read contemporary Syrian theatre plays (texts are provided, they are in German, English and/or Arabic) and discuss them in transculturally mixed groups. For Arab students who study the German language, the exchange creates opportunities to excercise German language and to meet and support their peers in Germany who study Arabic. For students of literature or drama studies, it povides occasions for transcultural discussion of political and aesthetical aspects of contemporary Syrian plays and raises awareness of context specific conditions of creation and interpretation.
