GSA Exchange Now Open for Conference Planning

The German Studies Association is pleased to announce a pilot program for the 2014 Conference: The GSA Exchange. The Exchange is an online forum for prospective participants to discuss the creation of sessions. It is specifically targeted at participants who have a paper proposal but are not already part of a formal panel or session. We hope that the Exchange will make it easier for scholars with similar interests to find their 'family' before the deadline for submissions to the 2014 conference (February 17).

The Exchange and its forums can be accessed at Before accessing it, you will need to register an account. It is not possible at this time to link your Exchange account with your regular GSA online profile, but please register with the same e-mail address you use there. This will help speed up our verification process; we do want to limit access to the Exchange to those interested in participating in the GSA Annual Conference. If you are not currently a member of the GSA, please sign up at the main GSA website. Please bear in mind that only paid members of the GSA may submit proposals for the GSA conference.

Once you have registered an Exchange moderator will confirm your GSA membership. This may take up to a day to complete ' we apologize for this necessary delay.

Please direct any technical questions to Charles Fulton.
