BMW Center  for  German  and   European  Studies              

Annual Report   2010-­‐2012    


  The  Edmund  A.  Walsh  School  of  Foreign  Service   Georgetown  University  


I am   pleased   to   present   the   combined   2010-­‐2011   and   2011-­‐

2012 Annual   Report   of   the   BMW   Center   for   German   and   European   Studies   of   the   Edmund   A.   Walsh   School   of   Foreign   Service,  Georgetown  University.  In  the  pages  that  follow,  you  will   find   words   and   images   depicting   the   broad   range   of   activities   carried  out  in  and  by  the  Center  during  the  past  two  years,  which   have   been   in   in   many   ways   quite   typical   for   the   Center   community,  full  of  promise,  ambition,  and  accomplishment.  In  other  ways,  though,  they   were   very   special.   Most   notably,   we   celebrated   the   twentieth   anniversary   of   the   Center's   founding   in   the   fall   of   2010   with   a   series   of   events   and   a   gala   reception   in   October.     On  the  occasion  of  the  reception,  I  was  asked  by  the  SFS  Office  of  Communications  for  a   comment:     The  decision  20  years  ago  to  create  a  set  of  demanding  academic  degree   programs  with  the  original  gift  from  the  German  government  has  paid   dividends   beyond   all   expectations.   The   BMW   Center   has   become   a   magnet   for   talented   young   people   seeking   to   deepen   their   understanding   of   Europe   and   to   integrate   that   knowledge   with   practical   skills.   At   the   same   time,   the   Center   has   generated   strong   impulses   at   Georgetown   and   within   Washington,   D.C.   that   have,   in   no   small   way,   helped   to   maintain   and   even   strengthen   transatlantic   ties   during  challenging  times.     A   second   highlight   of   this   period   is   the   appointment   of   a   new   core   faculty   member,   Dr.   Anna   von   der   Goltz.   She   adds   new   teaching   and   research   dimensions   in   modern   German  history  to  the  BMW  Center,  and  we  were  thrilled  to  welcome  her  to  the  Hilltop   when  she  arrived  from  the  UK  at  the  start  of  the  spring  2012  semester.       During   the   past   two   decades,   the   BMW   Center   has   established   itself   as   the   premier   center   of   its   kind   in   North   America.   The   Center's   faculty,   staff,   and   students   stand   before  a  future  that  is  both  bright  and  exciting.  And  so,  on  behalf  of  the  BMW  Center   community,  I  would  like  to  express  our  warm  and  sincere  thanks  to  the  BMW  Group  for   its  generous  financial  support  and  wise  counsel.       Sincerely  yours,  

Jeffrey  J.  Anderson   Graf  Goltz  Professor  and  Director   BMW  Center  for  German  and  European  Studies     3  


BMW Center  Events  Program      

BMW Center  events  are  intended  to  enrich  the  study  programs  of  our  graduate  students  and   at   the   same   time   to   connect   the   University   campus   to   the   broader   policy   world,   both   in   Washington,   D.C.   and   in   Europe.   In   the   two   academic   years   since   2010,   the   BMW   Center   hosted   60   public   events,   ranging   from   large-­‐scale,   multi-­‐day   policy   and   academic   conferences  to  formal  addresses  by  visiting  heads  of  state  to  intimate  luncheon  lectures  by   academics.  A  complete  list  of  events  organized  in  2010-­‐2011  and  2011-­‐2012  can  be  found   in  the  appendix.

  CGES  Alumni  Association  (CGESAA)     The   Alumni   Association   continues   to   play   an   active   role   in   the   Center.     Alumni   planned   a   variety   of   events   throughout   the   2010-­‐2011   and   2011-­‐2012   academic   years   to   support   students’   professional   development.     CGESAA   also   convened   regularly,   held   social   events   to   bring  alumni  together,  and  showed  support  for  the  Graduate  Student  Conference.     CGESAA  members  attended  the  MAGES  Final  Colloquium  in  April  2011  and  2012,  at  which   the  second-­‐year  students  presented  their  final  MAGES  projects.    CGESAA  is  responsible  for   giving   out   the   Jill   Hopper   Award   at   the   Colloquium   each   year.     The   Alumni   Association   president,   Zachary   Wynne,   coordinated   the   Hopper   Award   process.     Created   in   1999   to   honor  the  memory  of  Jill  Alexandra  Hopper  (Class  of  1996),  the  Hopper  Award  recognizes   dedication  to  academic  service  and  scholarship.    Second-­‐year  MAGES  students  are  selected   via   a   two-­‐tiered   process   of   peer   nomination   and   alumni   assessment   of   finalists’   Master’s   Projects.     The   winner   of   the   2011   Jill   Hopper   Award   was   Michael   McKeon,   whose   project   was   titled   “Doctrinal   Activism   through   Popular   Legitimacy:   An   Analysis   of   the   European   Court   of   Justice’s   Relationship   with   the   European   Citizenry”.     Susan   Fratzke   was   the   winner   of   the   award   in   2012,   and   her   project   was   titled   “Civic   Participation   Among   Kurdish   Migrants  in  Germany”.                                       Presentation  of  the  2011  Jill  Hopper  Award  to   Presentation  of  the  2012  Jill  Hopper  Award  to     Michael  McKeon   Susan  Fratzke     In  2012,  the  BMW  Center  launched  a  new  Alumni  outreach  initiative  to  reconnect  with  the   program’s  alumni,  especially  those  based  in  Europe,  and  enlisted  the  support  and  assistance   of   the   CGESAA.     Together,   CGESAA   and   the   senior   leadership   of   the   Center   put   together   three  events  that  brought  together  over  60  alumni  in  the  US  and  Europe.       16  

The initiative  kicked   off  on  May   22  in  Washington,   D.C.  with  a  reception  at  the  Hillyer  Art   Gallery  that  featured  a  talk  about  the  relationship  between  the  US,  Europe,  and  China  given   by   Steven   Hill,   author   of   Europe’s   Promise   and   co-­‐founder   of   FairVote.     In   June,   Center   Director,   Jeffrey   Anderson,   and   CGESAA   President,   Zachary   Wynne,   traveled   to   Berlin,   Germany   to   host   a   reception   at   the   Soho   House,   which   was   attended   by   alumni   based   in   Berlin,  Brussels,  Munich,  Hamburg,  and  several  other  European  cities.    This  was  followed  by   a  more  informal  Germany  vs.  Denmark  Euro  Cup  viewing  dinner  in  Frankfurt,  Germany,  that   was   attended   by   locally   based   alumni.     We   extend   special   thanks   to   Brent   Goff   (’98)   in   Berlin   and   Chris   Porter   (‘98)   in   Frankfurt   for   their   help   in   coordinating   these   successful   events.     Given   the   extremely   positive   response   received   after   the   events   in   D.C.   and   Germany,   the   Center   plans   to   work   with   CGESAA   to   put   together   more   outreach   events   on   the   West   Coast   in  the  US  and  again  in  Europe  in  the  coming  academic  year.

Governance and  Administration   Advisory  Council     At   the   2010   Advisory   Council   meeting,   which   coincided   with   festivities   marking   the   BMW   Center's   20th   anniversary,   representatives   from   BMW   AG   announced   the   creation   of   a   MAGES   summer   internship   position   in   the   Government   Relations   Department   at   the   company's   headquarters   in   Munich.   To   date,   two   MAGES   students,   David   Gregg   (Summer   2011)   and   Lars   Miethke   (Summer   2012)   have   participated   in   this   exciting   new   program.     The  Advisory  Council  was  briefed  on  the  academic  and  administrative  status  of  the  Center   and   discussed   priorities   and   challenges,   including   the   search   for   a   new   history   faculty   member   following   Professor   Chickering’s   retirement,   the   state   of   the   Endowment   and   the   University’s  austerity  measures,  and  the  future  of  the  Chair  in  Political  Economy.  Professor   Jeffrey   Anderson   asked   for   recommendations   for   new   Advisory   Council   Members.     The   BMW  Center  for  German  and  European  Studies  is  pleased  to  present  three  new  members,   starting  in  fall  2012:  Cathryn  Clüver,  Caroline  King,  and  Jeffrey  Thinnes.      

Executive Committee     The   BMW   Center’s   governing   body,   the   Executive   Committee,   consists   of   the   Center   Director,   the   MAGES   Director,   the   Dean   of   the   School   of   Foreign   Service,   Center   faculty,   faculty   representatives   of   departments   with   which   the   Center   has   joint   degree   programs,   and   a   MAGES   student   elected   by   his   or   her   peers.   The   Executive   Committee   advises   the   Center   Director   on   programmatic   and   curricular   policies,   and   facilitates   cooperation   among   the   various   parts   of   the   University   associated   with   the   Center.     The   Committee   worked   on   a   variety   of   issues,   including   implementing   the   learning   goals   and   assessment   mechanisms   developed   in   preparation   for   Georgetown   University’s   Middle   States   accreditation   review.     Additionally,   the   Committee   made   a   decision   after   careful   consideration   to   revise   the   MAGES  curriculum  by  reducing  the  number  of  interdisciplinary  electives  from  three  (3)  to   two   (2).     This   change   allows   students   to   increase   the   number   of   free   electives   in   their   tailored  programs  of  study,  thus  allowing  greater  flexibility  in  their  area  of  concentration.    

Center Faculty  

The   BMW   Center   is   pleased   to   welcome   two   new   faculty   members:     Assistant   Professor   Anna  von  der  Goltz  (SFS/History)  and  Visiting  DAAD  Professor  Asiye  Kaya.         Dr.   von   der   Goltz   joined   the   BMW   CGES   core   faculty   as   an   Assistant   Professor  in  January  2012,  filling  the  position  left  vacant  after  Professor   Roger   Chickering’s   retirement.   She   holds   a   joint   appointment   in   the   School  of  Foreign  Service  and  the  History  Department.    From  2006  until   2011,   she   held   a   Junior   Research   Fellowship   at   Magdalen   College,   Oxford.   Before   coming   to   Georgetown,   she   was   a   Leverhulme   Early   Career   Fellow   and   Affiliated   Lecturer   in   the   Faculty   of   History   at   the   University   of   Cambridge.     Her   work   on   the   Hindenburg   myth   won   the   Wiener   Library's   Fraenkel   Prize   in   2008   and   the   German   History   Society's   and   Royal   Historical  Society's  Joint  Essay  Prize  in  2006.     18
