Triangular Readings in German Literature and Culture is the title of a two-day interdisciplinary German studies conference aimed at the development of scholarship on the role of the Third in German literature and culture as well as on triangulation as a method of inquiry in literary scholarship. The meeting, which will take place on the University of Georgia campus May 14-15, brings together scholars, both junior and senior, from North America and Europe whose areas of expertise range from medieval to 21st-century German literature and culture. Participants will consider figurations and configurations of the Third, discuss triangular structures in German literary and cultural history, gauge the merits of the approach and look toward future applications.

The conference is organized by Drs. Martin Kagel and Alexander Sager of the department of Germanic and Slavic studies at UGA. It is sponsored by the Max Kade Foundation, the A.G. Steer Professorship, the department of Germanic and Slavic Studies, the UGA president’s venture fund, and the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts.
