The German Studies Association (GSA) will hold its 42nd Annual Conference from 27 to 30 September 2018 at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Downtown in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA).
The Program Committee cordially invites proposals on any aspect of German, Austrian, or Swiss studies, including (but not limited to) history, Germanistik, film, art history, political science, anthropology, musicology, religious studies, sociology, and cultural studies.
Proposals for entire sessions, for interdisciplinary presentations, and for series of panels are strongly encouraged (though we discourage thematic series of more than four panels). Individual paper proposals are also welcome. The call for seminar proposals has been distributed separately.
Please see the "current conference" page here for information about the submission process for ‘traditional’ papers, sessions, and roundtables, which will open on 5 January 2018. The deadline for proposals is 15 February 2018.
Please note that all proposed presenters must be members of the German Studies Association. Information on membership is available here.
In order to avoid complications later, the Program Committee would like to reiterate two extremely important guidelines here (the full list of guidelines is available here):
1. No individual at the GSA conference may give more than one paper or appear on the program in more than two separate roles. (Participating in a seminar counts as delivering a paper.)
2. If a paper proposal requires high quality sound equipment, that justification must be made in detail at the time of submission.
For more information, please see our previous conference programs, a detailed list of submission guidelines, and contact information for the 2018 Program Committee here.
