Université Concordia University, Montréal, Québec, Canada, 28-31 May 2010

You are invited to submit proposals for papers to be given at the CAUTG annual meeting at Concordia University. Papers presenting original, unpublished research on any topic or period of German-language literature, cinema, cultural studies, German language and language pedagogy are welcome, in English, French or German.

You may submit a proposal in one or more of the following categories:
1) Single paper proposals: maximum 600 words.
2) Panel proposals: panels of three papers on a related theme are welcome. The panel organizer should submit a proposal explaining the theme as well as the proposals for the individual papers as a package. Maximum 2000 words. The panel proposals will be assessed on their merits as a panel separately from the single paper proposals.
3) Joint session: we are especially pleased to announce a joint session in conjunction with l’Association canadienne des études françaises. Proposals for this session should be 600 words maximum. “Germany-France: Meetings and Reunions. Many chapters of French and German literary history are presented as the development of influences or readings coming from Germany or France. From the learned and popular references which Germany and France shared in the Middle Ages, to their dialogue at the time of the French Renaissance and the empire of Charles Quint, to the mythological echoes in Goethe, to the spreading of romantic ideals and romantic imagination, and, later, of Marxist movements: countless moments offer themselves to the scholar, to trace the fecund intellectual filiation between the two neighbours. These moments, sometimes concealed, sometimes revealed by the nationalisms of the two countries, seem to be foundational of a modernity which explodes with the Dadaist movement in the midst of WWI. But we cannot be solely satisfied with the term “influence”: does chronology imply hierarchy? Does the impact lead, in turn, to influence, recognition, creation? Does the model serve as mirror to aesthetic consciences? By suggesting a joint session between our associations, the communications of which would be in English, we hope to pave the way for a pluridisciplinary debate not only on the relationship between national identity and creation, but also between influence and self-invention. By focusing on the great dialogues ranging from Enlightenment through Romanticism to the first decades of cinema in Europe and up to today, our sessions will consider influence as meeting and literary history as reunion.”

A copy of your proposal should be in the hands of the program chair no later than 15 November 2009; late proposals will not be considered. Proposals are to be submitted electronically as a Word document or .rtf file. Because the proposals are refereed blind by an adjudication committee, the authors’ names should not appear on the proposal itself. Please include your university affiliation and contact information in the e-mail with which you send your proposal. Decisions will be announced by the end of December.

Presentation time at the conference is limited to 20 minutes per paper. Primary sources in German should be quoted in the original language (except for the joint session with French studies, where English will be the working language). Please note that presenters must be paid-up CAUTG members at the time of their presentation.

The CAUTG meets as part of the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Canada, organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences ( The largest multidisciplinary meeting in Canada, the Congress hosts the meetings of dozens of scholarly associations during an 8-day period, bringing together scholars from across Canada and around the world. The overall theme of the 2010 Congress is “Connected Understanding / Le savoir branché.” Limited travel assistance will again be available to those reading papers. However, we strongly encourage presenters to seek funding at their institution.

Submissions and inquiries should be addressed to:
