German Studies Seminar: 2022-2023 Call for Proposals Submission Deadline: June 3, 2022

German Studies Seminar: Call For Papers

This seminar, which convened for the first time in AY 2020-2021, provides a forum for scholarship-inprogress in the area of German Studies, broadly defined. We welcome work on modern and pre-modern topics from all disciplinary perspectives, including but not limited to Literature, History, Art History, Philosophy, Music, and the Social Sciences. The seminar is particularly interested in papers that cross disciplinary boundaries, and that reconceptualize the materials and conventions of German Studies as a field, including beyond the frames of the German language and nation state.

Seminars for AY 2022-2023 will be a mix of in-person events at the Newberry and virtual events on Zoom. The Newberry is unable to provide funds for travel and lodging for presenters and respondents, but can assist in locating discounted accommodations.

If you have questions, please contact the seminar organizers: Alice Goff (University of Chicago), Imke Meyer (University of Illinois Chicago), Sophie Salvo (University of Chicago), Anna Souchuk (DePaul University), Lauren Stokes (Northwestern University), or e-mail
