Harvard paid host to a weekend-long conference on German culture and politics over the Valentine’s weekend at Radcliffe Yard.

The conference which was sponsored by many multinational companies attracted several hundred Germonphile delegates from around the world and was the 15th year this conference has been held.

Offering panel discussions and speeches from scholars in German studies the conference is a unique gathering of the major minds in the academic and artistic fields associated with German studies.

Some of the prestigious panellists included Norbert Lammert: President of the German Bundestag, Yves Leterme: Deputy Secretary-General of the OECD and The Harvard Kennedy School’s Nicholas Burns: The Sultan of Oman Professor of International Relations.
