We are dedicated to interdisciplinary research on topics in German Studies related to issues of modernity. Bringing together students and scholars working in literature, film, media, and history, our working group offers graduate students at Berkeley a unique opportunity to engage in international exchange and scholarship on cutting-edge topics in German Studies. Each year, one of the chapters of the group hosts a conference that represents the culmination of our discussions throughout the year. Over the years, the group's projects have led to a number of publications, dissertation topics, and conference panels at the Modern Language Association and the German Studies Association. In addition, Berkeley members have accepted faculty positions at a number of leading institutions.

If you would like to participate in our working group, please read the information for new and prospective members and direct any questions to the Department of German.
