Women in German 2021: Poster Session (deadline: April 1, 2021)

We invite submissions for the poster session at the WiG conference in Portland, Oregon, Nov. 4-7, 2021. The poster session allows scholars to employ audiovisual forms to initiate conversations about intersectional feminist issues in their research, teaching, and activism. Submissions have taken the form of traditional posters, PowerPoint presentations, short films, websites, dioramas, installations, interactive experiences, etc. “Posters” can address a variety of topics, such as pedagogy, literature, film, cultural studies, history, and politics. Be creative, discover a new approach to your work, and gain valuable feedback in real time.

Please email an abstract of 300-400 words describing the project’s content, thesis, and form (a description of the layout, design, and materials/technology) and a short biography to the session co-organizers, Julia Gruber (, Mareike Herrmann (, and Regina Range ( Deadline for proposal submissions is April 1, 2021.

Presenters must provide their own materials, equipment, and technology; please consider these logistics in your proposal.

Note: Given the volatile situation presented by the pandemic, we are not certain what the WiG conference will look like next year. At the moment, we are planning for an in-person conference in Portland, Oregon on November 4–7, 2021. We will revisit this discussion at our spring leadership meeting and will notify the membership at that point as to whether any changes are necessary and forthcoming. Membership to the Coalition of Women in German will be required to present on this panel but is not required to submit an abstract.
