Each Winter, the German Studies Colloquium meets weekly to discuss precirculated papers by graduate students and faculty in the various German Studies (GS) disciplines at the University. In addition, the colloquium will feature speakers invited from other institutions to discuss aspects of their work. The colloquium is open to all graduate students and faculty interested in GS. It is part of a series of GS seminars and events exploring a different topic each year. Students planning to participate and present papers in the workshop are particularly encouraged to enroll and to use the colloquium as a forum for presenting and discussing their work.
