National Postgraduate Colloquium in German Studies

The National Postgraduate Colloquium in German Studies first met in February 1987 at what was then the Institute of Germanic Studies. It met, first on an annual basis and, from 1988 onwards, twice a year, with one meeting held at the IMLR in London, and the second at another university in the UK. So far it has been the guest of the Universities of Aston in Birmingham, Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, East Anglia, Leeds, Leicester, Manchester, Newcastle upon Tyne, Oxford, St Andrews, Sheffield, Southampton, Swansea, and Warwick.

The Colloquium provides a friendly and informal forum for graduate students in all areas of German Studies to present and discuss their current research, and to make contact with students from other universities. It is a measure of its success that the Colloquium now attracts students from universities in mainland Europe and North America.

The Colloquium is organised by a committee of students in association with the Institute. Current members are:  Jack Coopey (Durham); Jade Johnson (Sheffield); Sina Stuhlert (Bristol); Samuel Thompson and Rebecca Wismeg (King's College London).

For general enquiries or to attend a meeting please contact Jane Lewin at the IMLR.
