The Society for German-American Studies will hold its 42nd Annual Symposium in Indianapolis, Indiana, 19–21 April 2018.
Symposium theme and how to submit a proposal:
“World War I and Its Repercussions for German America: A Centennial Assessment”
The First World War was an event that changed the course of history. Its effect was global, but arguably no group felt its impact more than the German Americans. Though many publications have appeared, conferences have been held, and lectures have been given, it nevertheless seems appropriate now, at the centennial anniversary of the War’s end, to look back once again on its consequences for the group our Society takes as its focal point.
However, as is our tradition, we also accept proposals dealing with other aspects of German-American studies, including the history, language, literature, society, and culture of immigrants from German-speaking areas of Europe as they established themselves in and interacted with the situation and the people of their new homeland, as well as comparative topics with a German-American component.
Membership in the Society for German-American Studies is required to participate in the Symposium.
Please submit to Cora Lee Kluge a one-page proposal, together with a brief abstract, which will be published in the online program if accepted, of your proposed presentation, preferably in electronic form, by December 15, 2017. Include your paper title, your full name as you wish it to appear in the program, your email address, your complete mailing address, and your academic affiliation, if any.
Cora Lee Kluge <email@example.com> Please include SGAS in the subject line.
