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.

See our Hall of Fame for speakers who have visited us in the past and check out our Termcard to find out more about our events!

  • Cambridge Stands with CEU! – In Support of Academic Freedom
    14:00-17:00
    2017.04.16

    8 King’s Parade, Cambridge CB2 1SJ, UK

    8 King’s Parade, Cambridge CB2 1SJ, UK

    On April 4th, the Hungarian National Assembly passed a law amendment that could effectively force the Central European University (CEU) out of Hungary. Many raised their voices in support of the university, including 14 Nobel Laureates and tens of thousands of protesters on the streets of Budapest. As a coordinated international response to this breach on academic freedom, we invite you to stand with CEU by having your picture taken this Sunday, between 2pm and 5pm, on King’s Parade.

    A white board for you to convey personal thoughts on what academic freedom means to you will be available. As a symbol of solidarity, you are encouraged to wear blue ribbons or the color blue (clothing, posters, etc). We’ll also be handing out #IStandWithCEU badges. The #IstandwithCEU campaign will post these photos as part of an international show of support on Monday, April 17th.

    It will only take a few minutes! Please share this event with your friends around Cambridge, and show up on Sunday in support of academic freedom!

    Use the hashtags #IStandWithCEU,#WeStandforAcademicFreedom/#AcademicFreedom.

    Before the legislation was ratified, 15 Cambridge student societies signed a joint statement in defence of academic freedom in Hungary and beyond (http://cuhs.co.uk/in-defence-of-academic-freedom/). A number of Hungarian Societies across the UK, including the CU Hungarian Society, also sent an open letter to Hungary’s Minister of Human Resources, Zoltán Balog, and to the Hungarian ambassador to the UK, Kristóf Szalay-Bobrovniczky, expressing their concerns in relation to the legislation (http://budapestbeacon.com/news-in-brief/hungarian-students-uk-sign-open-letter-support-ceu/45518). For more information regarding (government and academic) organisations who have expressed their support of CEU so far, see https://www.ceu.edu/istandwithCEU/support-statements.

    Our Exchange with the German Societies from Oxford and London is taking place in London on Thursday, 27th April. The exact programme for the day will be confirmed shortly, but it will definitely include a talk with the German FDP politician Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger (organised by LSE) and dinner. More details will follow in due course.

    For now, I am happy to announce that I managed to organise an exclusive tour of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London for the afternoon [https://www.vam.ac.uk]. The tour will be FREE to attend and the provisional schedule is as follows:

    13:30 Drinks reception and welcome address by the Deputy Director andChief Operating Director Tim Reeve
    14:00 Guided tour
    15:00 Free time, museum café
    From 16:00 onwards, activities with German Societies from Oxford and London

    Due to the limited number of places for this tour, priority will be given to CUGS Members. Places will be allocated by ballot. Please sign up on the link sent to all CUGS Members by email, by Sunday, 16th April. You will receive a confirmation email with further details if you managed to secure a spot.

    Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get an insight into the world’s leading museum of art and design!
