“New Feminist and Queer Approaches in German Studies”

In its inaugural collaborative panel with the CAUTG, Women in German would like to assess the field of North American German Studies from critical perspectives rooted in gender and queer theory. The format will feature short paper presentations (ca. 10 minutes) followed by a roundtable discussion. We aim to show some of the diversity of current approaches to the interpretation of texts, broadly conceived, within German Studies. Each presenter will offer their reading of a text of their choice; the roundtable will discuss correspondences and divergences among the various approaches. We hope that this will lead to a fruitful discussion of current theoretical perspectives within and beyond the field.

Questions the papers and the roundtable discussion could address include but are not limited to:

Do gender-sexual theories and critiques offer special opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration between German Studies and other fields? What are examples?

Are there uniquely Canadian (and/or North American) approaches to gender-sexual criticism, especially within German Studies? How do these interface (or not) with Germanistik?

How can North American German Studies practitioners continue to model interdisciplinary collaboration through their use of these theories of gender and queerness?

The organizers and organizations encourage participation by scholars based in both Canada and the United States.
