The Waterloo Centre for German Studies promotes research into any and all aspects of the German-speaking world. As part of this mandate, the WCGS encourages the communication of research findings to both academics and the broader public. The Waterloo Centre for German Studies Book Prize has been established to recognize first-time authors whose scholarly work provides a substantial contribution to our understanding of any aspect of German-speaking society.
Please take a look at our conference program! We look forward to seeing you there!

Following the CAUTG annual meeting at Ryerson University, we are producing a conference volume representing our academic and strategic discussions regarding the past, present and future of German Studies, or “Germanistik.” We are requesting contributions exploring the historical and ongoing institutional and political challenges or featuring developments in transcultural and intermedial approaches.
“Translocality” is key for the Canadian context. From a European perspective, we are deemed “Auslandsgermanistik”, from a domestic perspective, we are scholars operating within foreign language and literature departments, which include linguistic, literary and cultural studies. In light of the two official national languages, English and French, and multicultural and multilingual setting including First Nations, intercultural approaches are prefigured in Canadian German Studies.
We are inviting two kinds of contributions:
1) Forum contributions (2-3 pages), based on, yet not limited to:
· contributions to our roundtable discussions
· the future of German Studies / Germanistik in Canada
· the role of the CAUTG, especially with regard to website & outreach activities
2) Academic contributions (10-12 pages), based on, yet not limited to:
· CAUTG 2017 conference presentations
· external papers reflecting the larger conference theme
· contributions in linguistic, literary and cultural studies
This special issue of the “Jahrbuch für Internationale Germanistik” will be edited by Nikola von Merveldt (Université de Montréal) and Andrea Speltz (University of Waterloo) in collaboration with Gaby Pailer (UBC Vancouver). Contributions may be in English, German, or French.
Please send a title and abstract (300 words) of your proposed contribution to Andrea Speltz and Nikola von Merveldt at CAUTG2017@gmail.com by June 30, 2017; the final contributions will be due 1 November, 2017.
