German Studies Forum

Monday, December 14, 2015 10:00 am - 10:00 am EST (GMT -05:00)

The German Studies Forum aims to

  • inform colleagues and graduate students about funding opportunities for German Studies research through the WCGS,
  • initiate new and boost existing collaborative research among colleagues and graduate students of universities in southwestern Ontario, and
  • foster new and extended venues for the exchange of ideas and the dissemination of research.

We'll have very short (1-minute) presentations in the morning, during which individual colleagues and graduate students can introduce their research interests, ideas, and projects. This will be followed by a few presentations about projects in progress. Breakout sessions for groups interested in the same or similar projects will take place in the afternoon.


10:00- 11:30 Brief Introduction of individual research interests and activities

11.30 - 12:30 Select project presentations

12:30-1:30 Lunch (2nd floor lounge)

1:30 - 2:30 Break into groups according to research areas

2:30 – 3:00 Groups reconvene in the plenary forum


Registration is free. The German Studies Forum is open to any academic researchers studying any topic related to German Studies, broadly conceived. This includes (and is certainly not limited to) political science, history, geography, linguistics, literature, film studies, culture studies, and cognate and overlapping areas in the Social Sciences and Humanities.

Please register, and then pass on the information about the event to anyone you know who might be interested in attending.
