The GSA will hold its 43rd Annual Conference from 3 to 6 October 2019 at the Hilton Portland Downtown in Portland, Oregon (USA).
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, for interdisciplinary presentations, and for series of panels are strongly encouraged (though we discourage thematic series of more than four panels). Individual paper proposals are also welcome. The call for seminar proposals has been distributed separately.
Please see the conference page for information about the submission process for "traditional" papers, sessions, and roundtables, which will open on 5 January 2019. The deadline for proposals is 15 February 2019.
Please note that all proposed presenters must be members of the German Studies Association. Information on membership is available here.
In order to avoid complications later, the Program Committee would like to reiterate two extremely important guidelines here:
1. No individual at the GSA conference may give more than one paper or appear on the program in more than two separate roles. Participating in a seminar counts as delivering a paper.
2. If a paper proposal requires high quality sound equipment, that justification must be made in detail at the time of submission.
