Southeast German Studies Consortium Workshop 2021
Postponed during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic in Spring 2020, the Center will now host the next Southeast German Studies Consortium (SEGSC) workshop as an online event on March 18 and 19, 2021. First convened in 2008, the annual SEGSC workshop bring together thirty to fifty graduate students and faculty with strong interests in German Studies who are based in the southeastern United States have been taking place at various universities and colleges in the region. Participants have come from a broad array of fields (including but not limited to literature and language, history, cultural and film studies, musicology, and political science). Following the format of previous workshops, the Thirteenth SEGS Workshop at ASU will revolve around invigorating and collegial discussions of the participants’ short, pre-circulated position papers. The meeting eschews formal panel presentations in favor of more democratic group discussions of these papers. The position papers will address the workshop’s central themes in German-Jewish History and Studies. For this year's themes, see here.
