NEW YORK (November 2, 2010) – The German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI), in cooperation with the Heidelberg University Association, will host a transatlantic discussion on forces of internationalization, power shifts in an increasingly multi-polar world, and the structural differences of social policy between Germany and the United States. The event will take place on Monday, November 8, from 6:30-8:30 P.M., at the German House New York (871 United Nations Plaza, btw. 48th & 49th Streets).

His publications focus primarily on United States history, specifically U.S. foreign policy and transatlantic relations, as well as German history and historical theory.
