Poster Session: Open Topic

The organizers of the WiG Poster Session welcome proposals for the 31st Annual
Conference of the Coalition of Women in German. The poster session gives
researchers the opportunity to conceptualize their current research, teaching
or academic life in visual form. Proposals must include a brief abstract
describing the project and a detailed description of the poster?s layout,
design, and materials.

A poster presentation traditionally consists of one or two posterboard-sized
displays incorporating pictures and texts. However, we are interested in
redefining the ?poster? by including other media. We especially welcome
proposals in the category of 3-D art, interactive exhibits, and multimedia

Posters from past sessions have dealt with such topics as teaching, literature,
film, cultural studies, history, and balancing career and family. ?Posters?
have taken the shape of PowerPoint presentations, websites, dioramas, sculpture,
and of course, cardboard. To view photos of posters presented at WiG conferences

Many universities support the production of posters as a way of publicizing
research. You may want to find out what your institution offers in terms of
audiovisual support.
