A group of ten BA and MA Students of LMU Munich’s American Studies program participated in an international conference at Nova University in Lisbon in November, 23/24, 2019. At the conference, “Dikes of Courage: Martin Luther King, the Civil Rights Movement, and the Aesthetics of Protest,” they presented papers in two student panels on "#BlackLivesMatter and the Aesthetics of Protest.” Their papers analyzed the representations of the Black Lives Matter movement in different media and art forms: music, theatre, visual arts, and television.
