The Memory Studies Network of the German Studies Association (GSA) invites panel or individual paper proposals for the upcoming 2014 GSA meeting in Kansas City, Missouri (Sept. 18-21). The Memory Studies interdisciplinary network aims to create connections and establish ongoing networks between scholars working on questions of memory in German speaking culture, history, literature and beyond. Recent work in Memory Studies at the GSA has centered on such notions as multidirectional memory, postmemory, and prosthetic memory, as well as questions of trauma, gender, technologies and materialities of memory, everyday life, and various national and transnational memory projects. We welcome abstracts that engage with these terms, as well as interdisciplinary and transnational perspectives. Please send abstracts of ca. 250 words by February 1, 2014 to network co-chairs Jonathan Bach and Susanne Baackmann at . The selected network panels are then sent to the GSA program committee for final approval. We especially welcome panel proposals (but don't hesitate to submit an individual proposal) and seek to use this opportunity to expand and deepen the existing network of scholars studying memory within German Studies and related disciplines. All disciplines welcome.
