CAPAZ at Ciudad Global 2021 – Viva Alemania in Medellín
Medellín’s Instituto Tecnológico Metropolitano (ITM) has been holding the Global City event every year since 2012. The event consists of a week of academic, cultural, and artistic events organised to promote the exchange of knowledge and intercultural dialogue with a different guest country each year.
The guest country this year is Germany, which is why CAPAZ will be involved in a number of different ways.
The week’s events open on Monday, October 25, when CAPAZ Academic Director Prof. Dr. Stefan Peters will discuss peace in academic contexts with the directors of a number of higher education institutions.
An online discussion entitled Holocaust and Post-War Literature will be held on Wednesday, October 27 at 11:00 am (Colombian time). The debate will be broadcast on the ITM YouTube channel and via ITM’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. Prof. Dr. José Guillermo Anjel from the Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellín, Prof. Dr. Sascha Feuchert from the Justus Liebig University, Giessen, and Dr. Pilar Mendoza from the University of Frankfurt -all CAPAZ partner universities- will join this event.
A hybrid event will be held on Thursday, October 28 at 11:00 am (Colombia time), presented on-site at the Aula Magna at ITM Robledo and with live online transmission transmission through the ITM YouTube channel. The event will consist of a round table on the 2021 elections in Germany and their impact on Colombia. CAPAZ Academic Director, Prof. Dr. Stefan Peters; German Ambassador to Colombia, Peter Ptassek; Dr. Nicolas Beckmann from Universidad Pontifica Bolivariana de Medellín; and Ana Milena Restrepo from the Colombian-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce AHK will also take part in this event.
