German Studies Roundtable

The German Studies Roundtable provides a space for intellectual engagement with current scholarship from the interdisciplinary field of German Studies. This event is held once per semester and involves the pre-circulation across departments of one faculty member’s latest research. In the roundtable session, a selected respondent opens the discussion to those present. Both faculty within and outside the German Studies department are welcome to present their work.
