The Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures at The Ohio State University will host a two-day workshop for juniors and seniors from across the United States who show an interest in German language, literature, and culture, and who possess strong academic records as well as an aptitude for research and independent thinking.
Students participating in the workshop will have been nominated by their home institution faculty. At Ohio State, they will explore the rich diversity of perspectives on the field through interdisciplinary sessions on literature, film, culture, linguistics, and pedagogy led by Ohio State faculty. The workshop sessions represent the wide range of German Studies today, from medieval to media studies, cultural history, German-Jewish studies, and environmental humanities. Current graduate students will share their experiences and a panel of faculty and recent alumni will discuss academic and non-academic career opportunities after the M.A. and Ph.D.
