Canadian Association of University Teachers of German (CAUTG) 
University of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, 1-4 June 2013

You are invited to submit proposals for papers to be given at the CAUTG 
annual meeting at the University of Victoria. Papers presenting original, 
unpublished research on any topic or period of German-language literature, 
cinema, cultural studies, German language and language pedagogy are 
welcome, in English, French or German.

You may submit a single paper or panel proposal:
1)	Single paper proposals: maximum 400 words.
2)	Panel proposals: panels of three papers on a related theme are 
welcome.  The panel organizer should submit a proposal explaining the theme 
as well as the proposals for the individual papers as a package.  Maximum 
1500 words.  The panel proposals will be assessed on their merits as a panel 
separately from the single paper proposals. 
A copy of your proposal should be in the hands of the program chair no later 
than 30 November 2012; late proposals will not be considered. Proposals are 
to be submitted electronically as a Word document or .rtf file. Because the 
proposals are refereed blind by an adjudication committee, the authors’ names 
should not appear on the proposal itself. Please include your university 
affiliation and contact information in the e-mail with which you send your 
proposal. Decisions will be announced in early January.

Presentation time at the conference is limited to 20 minutes per paper.  
Primary sources in German should be quoted in the original language.
The CAUTG meets as part of the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social 
Sciences of Canada, organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities 
and Social Sciences ( The largest multidisciplinary meeting in 
Canada, the Congress hosts the meetings of dozens of scholarly associations 
during an 8-day period, bringing together scholars from across Canada and 
around the world. The overall theme of the 2013 Congress is “@ The Edge / @ 
La Fine Pointe.” Due to recent changes at the federal funding body, CAUTG 
may not be able to offer travel assistance to those reading papers. Therefore, 
we strongly encourage presenters to seek funding at their institution.

Please note that presenters must be paid-up CAUTG members at the time of 
their presentation.

Submissions and inquiries should be addressed to:
