43rd German Studies Association Conference
October 3-6, 2019 in Portland, OR

The 43rd German Studies Association (GSA) Conference will continue to host a series of seminars in addition to its regular conference sessions and roundtables. Seminars meet for all three days of the conference. They explore new avenues of academic exchange and foster extended discussion, rigorous intellectual debate, and intensified networking. Seminars are typically proposed and led by two to three convenors and they consist of a total of 10 to 20 participants, including the conveners. Conveners are expected to make every effort to aim for broad diversity and include scholars from different disciplines and at different career stages, including graduate students.

Seminars may enable extended discussion of a recent academic publication; the exploration of a promising new research topic; engagement with pre-circulated papers; an opportunity to debate the work of scholars with different approaches; the coming together of groups of scholars seeking to develop an anthology; or the in-depth discussion of a political or public policy issue, novel, film, poem, musical piece, painting, or other artwork.

The application process has two steps. You are invited to submit a preliminary proposal that includes the title and a 150-word description of your seminar by November 8, 2018. The committee will then provide suggestions and assistance for the final submission which is due by December 7, 2018. Find further details and a link to submit a seminar proposal here.
