TitelGSA-Panel: Multilingualism in German Studies
BeschreibungApplications are invited for a GSA Seminar on "Multilingualism in German Studies," to be held at the 40th Annual Meeting of the GSA in San Diego, September 29-October 2, 2016.

This seminar opens up a dialogue among colleagues in various fields of German Studies—historical, literary, pedagogical, linguistic, anthropological, cinematic, and otherwise—as to the role of multilingualism in our work. How do we account for linguistic diversity in and beyond “German-speaking” societies, past and present? How do our methods of analysis draw on multilingual conceptual and experiential contexts, as well as multilingual bodies of scholarly work and evidence? How is multilingualism reflected in our graduate and undergraduate teaching? This seminar is designed firstly to help participants share new and useful perspectives on multilingualism to embed into their own research and teaching, by bringing them into contact with scholars with other specializations. We intend further to foster communication between the various subfields of German Studies, by taking multilingualism, which concerns all members of the field, as a topic of discussion. Thirdly, we intend to come to grips with the role of multilingualism in Germany and the other German-speaking countries, which often entails very different versions of multilingualism. In this way, the seminar hopes to contribute to ongoing discussions in the context of the German Studies Association as to the relationship between language (writ large and small) and philology, linguistics, history, cultural studies, disciplinary change, globalization, and interdisciplinary collaborative work. The format of the seminar will be a dialogue based on pre-circulated papers composed by each participant. No formal presentations will be required, but each participant will be asked to offer a five-minute prepared comment on another’s paper.

Applications must be submitted through the GSA's website at . Applicants must be members of the GSA.

The seminar is organized by David Gramling [], Marc Pierce [], and Bethany Wiggin []. Please do not hesitate to contact any of the organizers, should you want more information.
