These are special features hosted by the organization GlobaLE. They deal with social and political issues, as part of a months-long festival criticizing globalization.
Been fun running these event posts by reader Marjon Borsboom. Many things I probably wouldn’t have heard about otherwise. This weekend, for one, the Vikings are coming to town. But they seem to have become a lot more tame since their erstwhile time of conquests, judging by the plastic swords and helmets and children’s rides at amusement parks. Let me know what you run into during this visit of theirs.
Good news for multicultural Leipzig. The city is looking for projects to fund.
One of the things that I’ve heard international people in Leipzig complain about the most has been the lack of access to information on jobs, leading many to think that the local job market is extremely limited and that therefore they should leave. With that in mind, we’ve decided to run a post two Sundays per month with location-relevant job ads we run across on the Internet. If you hear of any other job offers, please pass them along to us at email@example.com, subject line #ExpatJobs. For our next installment, we are seeking to start running a list of available English-teaching jobs in Leipzig and university positions as well.
It’s nice to see other people adding to a pool of diverse voices narrating life in and visits to our great little city. Today is Becky Markovitz’s turn to be featured in our Q&A; we are happy that, recently, she moved to Leipzig and has been chronicling her cultural discoveries and experiences living abroad for the first time through her blog, Live. Laugh. Leipzig. Here she gives us a little taste of what she’s been up to.
If you’ve stopped by before, you may have noticed LeipGlo looks a bit different now (once again). We’re changing our blog for a new reader experience: Over the next weeks, we will gradually adapt it to an even more magazine-like layout. We will also change the frequency and order of our columns and other sections, to make it more structured and improve the way we feature information. We hope you will enjoy it, and are open to your suggestions and other feedback. Feel free to comment here, and keep track of our changes by following #BehindTheScenes.
