Student Colloquium Series

This series provides a regular forum for graduate students to present their current work in German literary, cultural, and linguistic studies. This event is the perfect venue for works in progress, such as a conference paper, journal article, or dissertation chapter, where feedback and discussion (and presentation practice!) would be beneficial. The colloquium is organized and run by graduate students. 2017-2018 Organizer and Contact: Alicia Roy (aaroy [a]
