Please join us for a summer series of short, focused career conversations with former Duke postdocs and PhD students. On June 30, our guest is Steffen Kaupp, PhD '16 (German Studies), Director of Language Programs and Deputy Director at Goethe-Institut Boston.

5 Questions:

1. Can you tell us about your background?
2. How did you get your job at Goethe-Institut Boston?
3. What's a typical day like at your organization (pre- and post-COVID)?
4. What can postdocs and students who would like to work in this field (or explore it further) do to prepare?
5. What is the employment outlook for this field, given the COVID crisis? (please note that the answer to this question may be "we don't know yet")
