We are writing to share the wonderful news that Allie Hill (University of Portland) has agreed to renew her term as editor of Feminist German Studies for another three years. Allie’s initial term as co-editor of Feminist German Studies (2018-2020), first together with Waltraud Maierhofer and now with Hester Baer, has led to several exciting initiatives, including a name change from Women in German Yearbook to Feminist German Studies in 2018 to the journal’s newest initiative of offering two issues per year starting in 2020.
We are extremely honoured that Allie has agreed to renew her term as the journal’s co-editor for a second and final term (2021-2023) and look forward to seeing the rigorous and innovative feminist scholarship that will emerge in the years ahead.
-The WiG Leadership Team
Deadline: January 15, 2020
WiG Out Week is an array of WiG-endorsed events happening anywhere and everywhere the week of March 23-28, 2020. Potential ideas include regional symposia, (virtual) lectures, film screenings, book discussions, feminist pedagogy workshops, or local community service or activism initiatives. All events, big and small, are welcome, as long as they are in keeping with the WiG Mission Statement. While we are unable to provide funding, we will promote the events on the website and social media and feature them in a future newsletter. We envision this week as an opportunity to carry on the spirit of WiG throughout the academic year, promote feminist German studies in your communities, and celebrate Women’s History Month.
To submit your event for consideration, please send a brief proposal (~200 words) to the second year Steering Committee members, Didem Uca (duca[at]colgate[.]edu) and Nicole Grewling (ngrewling2[at]washcoll[.]edu), by January 15, 2020. In your proposal, please include a title, date/location, description of the event, names of organizers/participants, and how many WiGgies you hope to have in attendance. All are welcome to submit. Let us know if you have any questions.
We thank you for your time, energy, and commitment to WiG. We look forward to receiving your proposals and WiGging out together next spring!
