In 2023, the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at The Ohio State University will continue its initiative for German Studies involving all faculty at colleges and universities throughout the state. The Ohio German Studies Workshop (OGSW) is designed as a forum for Ohio German Studies and an opportunity for colleagues across the state to become better acquainted with each other, with the research that is being conducted in German Studies, and with the issues that we all face as German scholars in higher education institutions in the twenty-first century. This year, we meet for the 9th time!
