The Medieval and Early Modern German Studies Graduate Colloquium 2023 brings together faculty and graduate student scholars of pre-modern German literature and culture from North American universities. A bi-annual collaboration between pre-modernist Germanists at Princeton, Stanford, Berkeley, U of Toronto, U of Waterloo, and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, the gathering is designed to facilitate exchange of and feedback on graduate work in progress as well as to provide networking opportunities for all participants, who are often singularities on their individual campuses. This year’s gathering at Princeton (the hosting responsibilities alternate between participating universities) features a keynote lecture by Professor Aleksandra Prica, on Thursday, Nov. 2, followed by discussions of pre-circulated papers of participating graduate students on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3 and 4.
