Center-Co-Organized 13th International Southeast German Studies Workshop to Take Place Virtually in March 2021

Center-Co-Organized 13th International Southeast German Studies Workshop to Take Place Virtually in March 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Center for Judaic, Holocaust, and Peace Studies had to cancel the 13th Annual Southeast German Studies Consortium (SEGSC) workshop it was about to host this past spring. After consulting with the SEGSC committees, the Center will now hold the workshop as an online event on March 18 and 19, 2021. The workshop will place particular emphasis on transatlantic exchanges not only by featuring Prof. Schüler-Springorum, the director of the Center for Research on Antisemitism at the Technical University of Berlin (ZfA), as keynote speaker, but also by partnering with the ZfA to bring a number of junior and senior scholars from Berlin to the events in order to advance co-operations and networking between American and German scholars. First convened in 2008, the annual SEGSC workshops bring together fifty faculty members and graduate students 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. The upcoming workshop at Appalachian State will revolve around invigorating and collegial discussions of the participants’ short, pre-circulated position papers. These papers will address the workshop’s central themes of “New Approaches in German-Jewish Studies,” “Refugee and Migration Studies,” and “Public Representations of German and/or German-Jewish History and Culture.” For more on this conference, see here.  Please link the here to  https://holocaust.appstate.edu/conferences/southeast-german-studies-workshop-21
