Wilfrid Laurier University and University of Waterloo, Canada, 26-29 May 2012
You are invited to submit proposals for papers to be given at the CAUTG annual meeting at University of Waterloo / Wilfrid Laurier 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 Papers presenting original, unpublished research on any topic or period of German-language literature, cinema, cultural studies, German language and language pedagogy are welcome, in English, French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.
A copy of your proposal, maximum 400 words, should be in the hands of the program chair no later than December 1, 2011; 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 January.
Presentation time at the conference is limited to 20 minutes per paper. Primary sources in German should be quoted in the original language.
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 (www.fedcan.ca). 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 2012 Congress is “Crossroads: Scholarship in an Uncertain World / À un carrefour: La recherche dans un monde rempli d’incertitudes.”
Limited travel assistance will again be available to those reading papers. However, we strongly encourage presenters to seek funding at their institution.
Please note that presenters must be paid-up CAUTG members at the time of their presentation.
Submissions and inquiries should be addressed to:
Cheryl Dueck, CAUTG Program Chair
Department of German and Slavic Studies
University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada R3T 2N2
