The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at Washington University in St. Louis announces the 22nd St. Louis Symposium on German Literature and Culture. Crossing the Disciplinary Divide: Conjunctions in German and Holocaust Studies, organized by Professors Erin McGlothlin and Jennifer Kapczynski, will take place on March 20-22, 2014.
This international, interdisciplinary symposium will assess the relationship between German Studies and Holocaust Studies today. Symposium participants will explore how German Studies engages institutionally, methodologically and disciplinarily with Holocaust memory and representation and probe the attendant issues of pedagogy and canonization raised by this inquiry.
