The Barnard German Department organized a week-long project in Vienna, Austria, during the spring break for nine Advanced German-language students from Barnard and Columbia enrolled in Prof. Irene Motyl-Mudretzkyj's course, Vienna Stories: Filming Identities and Voices. The students met, interviewed and filmed refugees, recent immigrants and native Viennese to study identity, stereotypes and the notion of homeland. The students have made a documentary from this footage, which has been posted to the Department's website. Professor Motyl-Mudretzkyj and the students are available for interviews.
