The National Postgraduate Colloquium in German Studies is a biannual event organised in association with the Institute of Modern Languages Research (IMLR - formerly Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies) at the University of London. Launched in 1987, it provides an informal and friendly forum for graduate students in all areas of German Studies to present and discuss their current research.

Offers of papers from graduate students working on any aspect of German Studies, including all periods of literature, the arts, social sciences, history, and linguistics are invited for the 65th meeting, which will take place at the IMLR at the University of London Senate House. A general knowledge of German culture and language can be assumed, though not a specialised knowledge of individual topics. Presentations, no longer than thirty minutes in length, should be targeted to the occasion and make use of appropriate media. Papers may be given in English or German. Each paper is followed by a ten-minute period for questions and discussion.

If you would like to contribute a paper, please send an abstract of not more than 500 words to the organisers, c/o jane.lewin@sas.ac.uk. The abstract must include the following information as part of the same file (in either MS Word or pdf format):

  • Your name, postal address, email address, and contact telephone number
  • The name of the institution at which you are registered
  • The media required for your presentation (e.g. OHP, cd/cassette player;
    slide projector, data projector/ laptop [PowerPoint], VHS player)

Abstracts should be sent by email to jane.lewin@sas.ac.uk.  Offers of papers must be received by 11 February 2019.
