Call for Papers
Experimentations: German and Scandinavian Studies
A Graduate Student Conference at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst
18-19 February 2006
The graduate students in Germanic Languages and Literatures at the University of Massachusetts Amherst are pleased to announce an upcoming conference in German and Scandinavian Studies. Experimentations: German and Scandinavian Studies will be an interdisciplinary forum for emerging theorists and scholars in these areas and will provide an enriching and intriguing mixture of subject matter and scholarly interests.
Furthering the disciplines in which they work and learn, emerging researchers examine, critique, discuss, and interact with the work of their predecessors, while simultaneously offering their own theories and ideas. The graduate students of today change the faces of their disciplines and are crucial constituents of the academic world.
With this in mind, the conference organizers call for proposals for papers in German and Scandinavian Studies that deal with experimentation(s). "Experimentations" can be interpreted broadly. Presentations should be no longer than 20 minutes and should be in English, though abstracts (one page) may be submitted in English, German, or Swedish. Please submit proposals by December 1, 2005. Papers will be organized into appropriate panels. For more information, please visit the conference website: . Questions and abstracts can be sent to and . Financial assistance for travel may be available. Please indicate whether you would like to be considered.
We encourage and welcome interdisciplinary work. Papers may come from (but are not limited to) the following fields:
Art and architecture
Gender and/or sexuality
