Call for Goethezeit Dissertation Chapters for WORKSHOP

Taking place Sunday, November 8, 2020

We are delighted to invite interested graduate students working on their dissertations to apply for the 2020 Goethezeit dissertation workshop! Those who are accepted also receive a Gloria Flaherty Scholarship in the amount of $650 (to help with travel costs to the conference) plus a waiver of the conference fee.

In order to encourage and support research in the Age of Goethe, the Goethe Society of North America organizes dissertation workshops at its international Atkins conferences, held every three years. Participating students are selected on the basis of their dissertation prospectus and a letter from their adviser. They will participate in panel discussions, where they are engaged in conversation by senior scholars in their field who direct comments and questions to their projects.

The GSNA will hold its next dissertation workshop at the 2020 Atkins conference in Chicago this fall. All applicants (graduate students working on the dissertation) should:

  1. submit the following documents:
    1. curriculum vitae
    2. one dissertation chapter
    3. a prospectus
    4. a letter from the dissertation advisor briefly evaluating the student’s project and describing its progress.
  2. join the GSNA (for just $10!). Membership includes the Society's newsletter twice each year, as well as a copy of the Yearbook of the Goethe Society of North America.
