Metropolis 2017 (Summer School)
The DAAD Postgraduate Summer School is an opportunity for postgraduate students of German, both from the UK and abroad, to gather together for several days of papers, discussions, and social events. In 2017, this 4-day conference will take place between 26 and 29 June at the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR) in London, and will be (appropriately) themed around the concept of ‘metropolis’.
Keynote speakers: Erica Carter (King’s College London); Ruth Dawson (Hawaii/IMLR); Matthew Gandy (Cambridge); Esther Leslie (Birkbeck College, London); Martin Swales (University College London). In addition to the conference panels, the summer school will include a number of other stimulating events, such as a screening of Fritz Lang's 1927 expressionist epic Metropolis, walking tours exploring the ‘hidden’ sides of London's history and infrastructure, and an opportunity to respond creatively to the ‘metropolis’ theme.
Closing date: 16 January 2017
