Lakeland faculty member to lead film discussion
Academics - posted on 10/23/2006
Martin Ulrich, chairman of Lakeland College's creative arts division and an associate professor of German and music, will lead a "Flicks on Friday" discussion on Nov. 10 at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.
The film begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free to members of the JMKAC and students through age 21. Admission is $5 for members of the public.
Ulrich will lead a discussion following the screening of the film "Good Bye Lenin," a story about a loving son who tricks his fragile and staunchly communist mother into believing that the Berlin Wall still exists when she wakes up from a coma in post-communist East Germany.
The film was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2004 Golden Globes, and won prizes at more than 25 film festivals worldwide.
Ulrich will lead an open discussion on the challenges Germans experience after the Wall came down.
A member of Lakeland's faculty since 1983, Ulrich is a 1975 Lakeland graduate who earned a master's degree in general studies in humanities and a doctorate in Germanic languages and literature from the University of Chicago.
He had led several educational trips to Germany during his time at Lakeland, and spent four years studying at the Universitat Tubingen in Germany on a Fulbright Grant and a research grant from the German Academic Exchange. He also spent several years teaching at Lakeland College Japan in Tokyo.
He is an accomplished oboe player, a member of the Sheboygan Symphony Singers and writes the program notes for Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra concerts.
