Moynihan European Research Centers and The German Language Program within the Department of LLL present Film Screening and Discussion: Die fetten Jahre sind vorbei -The Edukators Directed by Hans Weingartner, 2003/4 (126 minutes) In their mid-twenties, Jan and Peter live together and share a blue VW bus as well as a deep-seated passion about social injustice in the world. It is not enough for them to distribute flyers at demonstrations; they need action and roam through the streets of the filthy rich at night, seeking to teach them a lesson. They don't steal anything, but break into empty houses and leave behind creative chaos, underscored by such scribbled slogans as "the days of plenty are numbered", signed "The Edukators". When one of the owners catches them by surprise, the "Edukators" have no plan for this situation and suddenly find themselves turning into kidnappers. (Language: German) Introduction by Eleanor M. Homolko Instructor of German Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, Syracuse University  Followed by a Q & A session with Eleanor M. Homolko

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
