"German Women Writers."


In its seventh year at the annual M/MLA convention, and expanded into dual panels in 2008, 2010 and 2011, the special session German Women Writers provides a forum for the sharing of research, analysis, interpretation and discussion of the works of major as well as lesser-known authors.


We are seeking papers which deal with the literary texts and lives of German-speaking women writers from any period and in any genre. Papers that address the informal Convention Theme of Art and Arifice are especially welcome.


Please submit 250-word abstracts and 50-word bio-blurb as email attachments to both Dr. Ekaterina Pirozhenko and Dr. Daniela M. Richter [log in to unmask] by May 1st, 2013.
