Call for Posters - 2020 Women in German Conference

Explore the potential impact of your latest project with a poster presentation at the 2020 Women in German conference in Sewanee, Tennessee, USA (Oct. 15-18). 

We invite submissions for the Women in German poster session, which allows scholars at all career stages to employ audiovisual forms to initiate conversations about intersectional feminist issues in their research, teaching, and activism. The poster session is open to any topic or project that reflects the values outlined in the WiG mission statement here

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. 

Here is a list of resources and examples that will help you to get a better idea of what a poster in a humanities context could look like and which tools you could use to create it. 

Please use this Google form to propose your project. It will ask you to describe the project’s content, thesis, and form (a description of the layout, design, and materials/technology). You will also need to provide us with a short biography.

Submissions are welcome until March 1, 2020. 

Questions can be directed to poster session organizers Benjamin Brand, Maureen Gallagher and Corinna Kahnke at postersession@womeningerman.org.
