November 8, 2016: American Election Night

Four years ago we celebrated our first American Election Night. This year, we came together again to discuss electoral proceedings, the candidates, media coverage and everything else concerning the presidential election 2016. Our "American Election Night 2016" took place on November 8, 2016 and students, colleagues and friends of the university joined us for an evening of up-to-date analyses, live debates, and critical discussions – while eagerly awaiting the results!
