Please see the following CfP for the 2012 Women in German Conference (Oct.
25-28, Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort, Shawnee on Delaware, PA)

Gendered Immigration in Pre-20th Century German Literature and Culture

This panel will investigate representations of immigration to and
emigration from Germany in the pre-20th century period. While much research
has investigated German encounters with the other on foreign soil through
travel, this panel instead explores the implications of permanent
relocation and its effects on national, racial, ethnic, religious, and
gender identities inside and outside of Germany.

Topics include:
women and gender in German colonialism
emigration to the United States
becoming German/losing Germanness
German women in exile/Germany as home to exiled women
"hybrid" German-x identities

Please submit 200-250-word abstracts by March 15, 2012 to Maureen Gallagher
(mogallag(AT) and Ulrike Brisson (ubrisson(AT) We
are looking forward to your proposals!
