Speaker/Performer: Daniel Steimer

Description: Germans are well-known for their beer; however, even we Germans like to meet up for a cup of coffee now and then. Join us on a Monday for a Kaffeeklatsch – literally: ‘coffee (and) gossip’. You don’t like coffee? Gossip isn’t your thing? No worries. We’re very liberal when it comes to choices of beverages or conversation topics. You just bring yourself and leave the rest to us.

Who should attend:
You’ve just started learning German and you would like to practice some more? You’ve been to Berlin once and want to know now if your impressions were only based on stereotypes? You simply like all the friendly people at the German department and you would like to get to know them better? Then this is the place and the time for you!

Open to the Yale community and invited guests.

Description: The core of the Agrarian Studies Program's activities is a weekly colloquium organized around an annual theme. Invited specialists send papers in advance that are the focus of an organized discussion by the faculty and graduate students associated with the colloquium.

“Hinterlands, Frontiers, Cities, and States: Transactions and Identities” is the theme for the next year. Among other things, this topic embraces the study of mutual perceptions between countryside and city, and patterns of cultural and material exchange, extraction, migration, credit, legal systems, and political order that link them.

Description: It's the biggest, funnest food event of the year. Welcome fall, roast pig, dance to music, and celebrate the beginning of another school year. It’s an experience you’ll be talking about for years. Everyone is invited. At the Yale Farm, we like to roast a pig to keep your spirits up as the weather starts getting cooler. Though we often encourage folks to eat less meat, when we do indulge, we make sure to purchase from a local farmer we believe in and eat the whole animal. But even if you don’t eat meat, you can pig out on vegetarian coleslaw, black-eyed peas, and collards, all prepared by students. Local resident and New York Times contributor Jack Hitt is providing the roasting know-how and a special Carolina-style barbeque sauce, too. And of course, don’t forget the music and dancing. Make our meal even more sustainable by bringing your own cup and cutlery!
