Students and professors from all around Canada gathered on Saturday, November 17, 2018, in Toronto for the 6th Undergraduate Colloquium in German Studies, organized by the Universities of Toronto and Waterloo.  Students submitted papers from a wide range of topics within German Studies, from film to museum studies to linguistics. It was a great experience to see motivated undergraduate peers presenting on topics they were passionate about, and had tirelessly researched. Some of the topics included the representations of female criminals in the media, the notion of time and its relation to specific artworks, and the construction of memory in our society. Each presentation and discussion offered thought-provoking questions and ideas and each was followed by a discussion. It was an absolute pleasure to attend the colloquium and present my first research paper in this environment.
