german studies association


The annual German Studies Association conference brings together over 1,000 scholars in the areas of German history, literature, culture, politics and any other discipline with a focus on German-speaking Europe in any time period. Presentations range over the period between the Middle Ages and the present. Younger scholars, including graduate students, can present alongside established members of the association.

The Thirty-Ninth Annual Conference will take place October 1-4, 2015, in Washington, D.C. Only dues-paying members of the German Studies Association with active profiles may submit proposals or be listed as a proposed participant. Interested scholars must submit session and paper proposals online through the GSA website. Proposals submitted by mail or e-mail will not be accepted.
