What real creative freedom feels like in a theme

ABOUT

The Cambridge University German Society was founded in 1908 and consists of students who share a common interest in German society, culture, and history. We aim to encourage intercultural discussions by providing a platform for mutual exchange for both Germans and non-Germans. Our Society welcomes members of all nationalities. We regularly organise talks, exchanges with other societies, and social events.

    The Cambridge University German Society proudly presents Yasmin Fahimi as our second speaker of Lent Term!

    Yasmin Fahimi is a German politician and was the general secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) from January 2014 to December 2015. Since 2016, Fahimi has been serving as State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs under the leadership of minister Andrea Nahles.

    At a time when the German employment rate is hitting record highs, it will be extremely interesting to see if and how working conditions will change in our more and more digitalised world and what new challenges and opportunities will arise. In this context, the topic of Yasmin Fahimi’s talk proves to be very timely and relevant: ‘Work in Transition – The Future of Work in a Digitalised World’.

    Please note that the talk will be held in English, followed by a discussion in German.

    Everyone welcome! We look forward to seeing you there!

    Dūzen Tekkal is a German-Yazidi journalist and war reporter who will share her personal experience from her trip to Iraq in 2014/2015, during which she travelled to the Sinjar mountains and witnessed the plight of the Yazidi minority. These experiences are published in her film HÁWAR (https://vimeo.com/191946649/a91db01a05). After her trip, she also set up an NGO with the same name that supports, informs, and helps the Yazidi minority in Iraq (www.HAWAR.help).

    Please note that the event will be held in English.

    We look forward to what promises to be a very interesting and important discussion!
