>Thursday Night Session: How Interdisciplinary Are We? How
>Interdisciplinary Do We Want to Be?
>
>  Recent work by WiG members has often been at the forefront of the trend
>
>toward increasingly interdisciplinary approaches in North American
>German Departments. WiG as an organization, however, continues to draw
>its membership primarily from departments of German literary and
>cultural studies, fields whose disciplinary methods often remain more
>familiar. We seek short, perhaps polemical, papers that might address
>some of the following questions:
>
>? Where and how should WiG position itself in the inter/disciplinary
>field and the debates on the future of Germanistik?
>? Should the organization continue to draw members primarily from
>literary and cultural studies departments or should an attempt be made
>to recruit feminist German Studies scholars from other disciplines?
>? What might be the advantages and disadvantages of a possibly radical
>change in the constituency of the organization?
>? If room were made for papers by scholars from other fields would there
>
>be fewer slots for papers by those in literary or cultural studies?
>? What disciplinary fields might be integrated into WiG?
>? Would scholars from other fields even want to come to the WiG
>conference?
