The Notre Dame Berlin Seminar brings scholars of German literary and cultural studies together with experts and leading figures of Germany’s literary scene. Fellows have the opportunity to engage personally with representatives from different areas of Germany’s vibrant literary field.
"I read the online schedule and — to be honest — wish I had the privilege to participate in your seminar as a listener. It will give a great overview about the literary field in Germany right now." Katja Bohnet, novelist & presenter at the 2019 Notre Dame Berlin Seminar
“What I learned in this seminar about the process of making a novel, a collection of poems or any work of literature from the manuscript to the first run and about all the parties involved in making this happen will shape my approach to teaching and researching in the field of Germanic Studies.” Lucas Riddle, Ph.D. Candidate, University of Illinois at Chicago
Faculty and advanced graduate students are invited to participate in this distinctive seminar series conducted in German. Participants have come from all academic ranks and many different institutions, including Washington University, Pomona College, Duke, Brown, Michigan State, Bowling Green, Queens College/CUNY, the University of Limerick and Fundan University in China.
"Thank you so much for one of the best intellectually stimulating two weeks that I have ever participated in. I had no idea what to expect with “Literaturbetrieb” and you totally opened my eyes and expanded my intellectual horizons.” Belinda Carstens-Wickham, Professor, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
“It’s rare to have the chance to spend so much time among one group of fellow literary scholars. If you are on the fence about whether or not to take part in 2019, do it! And bring an extra suitcase.” Christine Kenison, Assistant Professor of German, Saint Anselm College
The Notre Dame Berlin Seminar is co-directed by William Collins Donahue, University of Notre Dame, and Martin Kagel, University of Georgia, and sponsored by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Department of German and Russian Languages and Literatures at the University of Notre Dame in partnership with the University of Georgia.
