CFP: Feminist German Studies, special focus on disability studies

The editors of Feminist German Studies (formerly Women in German Yearbook) are seeking contributions to a special focus on disability studies within a German studies context. Contributions may include the represenation of abled and disabled bodies in literature (film, theater, etc.), teaching to/about students with disabilities, or even personal experiences as a differently abled person.

Julie Klassen in Memoriam

We are heartbroken to hear the news of Julie Klassen’s passing. As we enact change at our institutions in this political climate, we must also remember those who worked tirelessly before us. Julie was a longtime active and activist member of Women in German who frequently attended the annual meetings (and helped script the Cabaret!), took care of printing and mailing the Newsletter for several years, co-organized the 1990 annual meeting, and served as president from 2006-2008.
