Call for Papers, Panels, and Roundtables for the GSA Body Studies Network
Forty-Seventh Annual Meeting of German Studies Association (GSA)
Montréal, Canada October 5-8, 2023
Coordinators: Caroline Weist, German Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org); Paul Dobryden, German Studies (email@example.com); Katya Motyl, History (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Body Studies Network of the German Studies Association now invites abstract submissions of papers, panels, or roundtables for the upcoming October 5-8, 2023 conference in Montréal, Canada. We will consider proposals that examine the history, culture, gender, sex, race, ethnicity, and ability of the body in the German-speaking world. Papers that integrate global and/or postcolonial perspectives are particularly encouraged. There are no disciplinary, geographic, or temporal restrictions. All scholars who work with German-language texts, German-speaking areas, or sources that address German + Bodies in some way are encouraged to submit individual papers or full panels of 3-4 papers (please see https://thegsa.org/conference/submission-guidelines for details on panel composition).
As the official GSA submission deadline is March 27, 2023, we ask that interested authors send abstracts (300 words) and a short bio directly to any of the coordinators (please do not use the GSA portal) by March 7, 2023. The GSA Body Studies Network coordinators will then assemble a group of panels, providing moderators and commentators if needed, and submit them to the GSA under the auspices of the Network.
