The Body Studies Network of the German Studies Association invites abstract submissions for the upcoming September 15-18, 2022 conference in Houston, TX. 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 for details on panel composition). 

We ask that interested authors send abstracts (300 words) and a short bio to Heikki Lempa ( by Friday, March 11, 2022. 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. Please contact Heikki Lempa at the above address with any questions prior to submission.
