Call for Papers

Experimentations: German and Scandinavian Studies

A Graduate Student Conference at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst

18-19 February 2006

(Deadline: October 31, 2005)

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).
"Experimentation" 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 October 31, 2005. Papers will be organized into
appropriate panels. For more information, please visit the conference
Questions and abstracts can be sent to <> and

We encourage and welcome interdisciplinary work. Papers may come from (but
are not limited to) the following fields:
Art and architecture
Popular culture
Gender and/or sexuality
Literary studies
