members_group1The AGS holds an annual conference at changing locations throughout the UK and Ireland and brings together national and international scholars from all branches of German Studies. As a platform for discussing the latest research and developments in German Studies the conference fosters the exchange between established, postdoctoral and postgraduate researchers. Our regular themed panels, special panels and a lead panel organised by the host department cover a wide range of topics relating to German literature, culture and linguistics, from the Middle Ages to the present day. A lecture or reading by the President’s guest and cultural events regularly frame the conference programme. Recent conferences took place in Warwick, Newcastle, Limerick, Manchester, Cardiff, Edinburgh, and London.

Our next conference will take place from 29 to 31 August 2018 at Bangor University. The lead panel will be on the theme of “anniversary capital”. Our regular panels will also be running, as well as a number of one-off panels. The call for papers is available here.

For any conference-related questions, please contact the conference secretary Dr Frauke Matthes.
