The Society for German-American Studies will hold its 41st Annual symposium in Philadelphia, PA, 20 – 22 April 2017. The theme is “The Protestant Reformation at 500: Its Legacy from Pennsylvania across German America,” but there will also be sessions on other topics. The program is now available on the society's website: http://sgas.org/symposium/.
A friend sent me the following quotation from Jacques Lacan’s Ethics of Psychoanalysis:
“I hardly need to remind you of the story of the individual who emigrated from Germany to America and who was asked, ‘Are you happy?’ ‘Oh, yes, I am very happy,’ he answered, ‘I am really very, very happy, aber nicht glücklich!’”
I wasn't familiar with the story. Has anyone actually come across happy but unglücklich Germans abroad? I’m interested in immigrant emotions generally, so similar references would also interest me.
