CALL FOR PAPERS
The National Postgraduate Colloquium in German Studies is a biannual event organised in association with the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies at the University of London. Launched in 1987, it provides an informal and friendly forum for graduate students in all areas of German Studies to present and discuss their current research.
Offers of papers from graduate students working on any aspect of German Studies, including all periods of literature, the arts, social sciences, history, and linguistics are now invited for the 51st meeting, which will take place at the IGRS, University of London, on Thursday, 29 and Friday, 30 March 2012. A general knowledge of German culture and language can be assumed, though not a specialized knowledge of individual topics. Presentations, no longer than thirty minutes in length, should be targeted to the occasion and make use of appropriate media. Papers may be given in English or German. Each paper is followed by a ten-minute period for questions and discussion.
