Welcome to the Waterloo Centre for German Studies
The Waterloo Centre for German Studies is a research institute at the University of Waterloo. Funded by private donations, the WCGS supports research into all aspects of the German-speaking world, and is committed to publicly-oriented scholarship. We facilitate the communication of German studies research, distribute awards to students wishing to study in Germany, and organize cultural programming for the university and wider communities.

Canada is the guest of honour at the 2021 Frankfurt Book Fair. In that spirit, the Waterloo Centre for German Studies has chosen a Canadian author in German translation and is offering this meeting on a Sunday to make it more convenient for fellow readers from Germany to join us. We'll be reading A Complicated Kindness/Ein komplizierter Akt der Liebe, by Miriam Toews, translation by Christiane Buchner.
