Dr. J Looks for Squatters

In May and early June, Dr. Johnson traveled to Berlin to conduct preliminary research for a new research project on "Collective Living, Social Experimentation, and Cultural Critique in Postwar West Berlin." As part of her research, she took photos of a famous squat calling for the destruction of capitalism and of an outdoor "automobile village." While in Germany, Dr. Johnson also traveled to Munich and Nuremberg to lay the foundations for a Global Studies course to be taught in Summer 2008, on "Munich, Nuremberg, Berlin: Legacies of the Third Reich." In Nuremberg, she accidentally discovered the red light district while checking out a student hostel. Fortunately, she was able to find other accommodations for UAH students!
