Call for proposals for the 2022 Annual German Studies Conference, Israel:
Language, Culture, Society
We invite scholars in fields related to German studies, including the humanities, social sciences, the arts, and Jewish studies to submit proposals for talks, panels, and workshops in the annual German Studies conference, which will be held on 9 June 2022. The venue is to be announced, contingent on COVID-19 conditions and regulations. Proposals for research related to contemporary or historical aspects of the German-speaking world, including from a comparative perspective, are welcome.
The goal of the conference is to foster connections, collaborations, and the exchange of ideas among Israeli and international scholars of all career stages within the German Studies research community – whether in history, the arts, literature, Jewish studies, the social sciences, political science, law, media studies, or any other relevant area of research.
University faculty, post-doctoral scholars, and graduate students are warmly invited to submit proposals. We are interested in proposals that will contribute scholarly excellence, interdisciplinary perspectives, and variety to the conference program and harbor constructive discussion within a growing scholarly community.
Proposals from any research discipline pertaining to the German-speaking world in any period are welcome. We especially encourage comparative and interdisciplinary contributions that place German issues within a global, trans-national, environmental, or theoretical context.

- Talk: should include a title, name of prospective presenter, and an abstract (up to 250 words), along with the presenter’s CV.
