Portal open, CfP: 46th Annual GSA Conference

The German Studies Association (GSA) will hold its 46th Annual Conference from 15-18 September at the Hilton Americas Hotel in Houston, TX.

2/23/2022 Updates:

  • Thank you for your patience as we developed our new conference submission interface. This process took longer than we had anticipated, but we are excited about our new partnership with OpenWater. We are now ready to accept submissions for Seminar Applications, as well as Individual Papers, Panels and Roundtables.
  • The direct link for the submissions portal is here: *46th GSA Annual Conference Submissions*
    • Please note that in order to log in to the submissions system, you must be a current GSA member. If you need to update your membership, please do so under *member services*.
    • If you experience any technical problems with the submission website, please contact Operations Director Dr. Benita Blessing (operations@thegsa.org). Because we are working with a new system, please inform us of any issues so that we can correct them. Thank you so much!
    • If you have any questions about your membership, please contact our partners at Johns Hopkins University Press (jrnlcirc@press.jhu.edu).
  • Seminar descriptions can be found here: *CfA Seminar Applications*
  • General conference information can be found under our *current conference* page.

For your convenience, here is the Call for Proposals.

The Program Committee cordially invites proposals on any aspect of DACHL (German, Austrian, Swiss, Liechtenstein) 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. 

Please see the *GSA website* for information about the submission process for traditional papers, sessions, and roundtables. 

The deadline for proposals is later this year than has been usual. It has been moved back to Monday, 28 March

Please note that all proposed presenters must be members of the German Studies Association. Information on membership is available on the GSA website (www.thegsa.org). This is particularly important because we are using a new submission system.

In order to avoid complications later, the Program Committee would like to reiterate two extremely important guidelines here (the full list of guidelines is available on the GSA website): 

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. 

For more information, visit the *conference information pages* on the GSA website, where previous conference programs can be found, as well as the new submission schedule and a detailed list of submission guidelines; or contact members of the *2022 Program Committee*.
