Call for Papers: German Studies Association Thirty-Ninth Annual Conference

The German Studies Association (GSA) will hold its Thirty-Ninth Annual Conference in Washington, DC, October 1-4, 2015.

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 and for interdisciplinary presentations are strongly encouraged. Individual paper proposals and offers to serve as session moderators or commentators are also welcome.

The call for seminar topics went out in mid-October. That deadline is December 10. Applications for participation in seminars will be opened on January 6, 2015.

Learn about the submission process for 'traditional' papers, sessions, and roundtables, which opens on January 5, 2014. All proposals must be submitted online; paper forms are not accepted. The deadline for proposals is February 16, 2015.

Please note that presenters must be members of the German Studies Association. Get more information on membership.

In order to avoid complications later, the Program Committee would like to reiterate two extremely important guidelines here:

  • No individual at the GSA Conference may give more than one paper or participate in more than two separate capacities.
  • All rooms will be equipped with projectors. It is the responsibility of the submitter of proposed panels to ensure payment of the AV fee for use of this equipment. If the paper proposal requires high quality sound equipment, that justification must be made in detail at the time of submission.
