For all the Germanists on this list, please see the following abstract for the 2012 Women in German Conference (Oct. 25-28, Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort, Shawnee on Delaware, PA)
This panel will investigate representations of immigration to and emigration from Germany in the pre-20th century period. While much research has investigated German encounters with the other on foreign soil through travel, this panel instead explores the implications of permanent relocation and its effects on national, racial, ethnic, religious, and gender identities inside and outside of Germany.
women and gender in German colonialism
emigration to the United States
becoming German/losing Germanness
German women in exile/Germany as home to exiled women
"hybrid" German-x identities
Please submit 200-250-word abstracts by March 15, 2012 to Maureen Gallagher (mogallag(AT)german.umass.edu) and Ulrike Brisson (ubrisson(AT)wpi.edu). We are looking forward to your proposals!
