>The desire to align oneself with a group and, at the same time, to
>distinguish oneself as an individual, generates conflict both internally
>and between generations.  Each generation struggles with this process on
>societal, familial, and personal levels.  Problems of identity and
>alterity are evident in autobiography and in travel writing, as well as in
>popular culture.  What are the traces and implications of the transmission
>of memory and societal continuity across generations?
>
>In association with the Generations conference in the Department of
>Germanics, this interdisciplinary graduate student conference will explore
>issues of identity and alterity in German culture.  We welcome proposals
>for papers from all disciplines.  Please submit proposals online or
