The CAUTG meets every year as part of the annual Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences of Canada, organized by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.

In 2021, Congress was supposed take place at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress 2021 is going virtual from May 30 until June 2.

Papers presenting original, unpublished research on any topic or period of German-language literature, cinema, cultural studies, German language and language pedagogy are welcome, in English, French or German. We also welcome proposals in related fields (e.g., history, art history, philosophy, musicology, education) provided they are related to topics in German Studies. We also welcome a panel proposal with 2-3 speakers.

Presentation time at the virtual conference is limited to 15 minutes per paper. Primary sources in German should be quoted in the original language.  Papers will be given as part of so-called ‘simu-live’ sessions: You are expected to pre-record your paper and upload it prior to Congress to the virtual event platform. These sessions will start with a brief live introduction by the panel chair, followed by the activation of the pre-recorded presentations, and end with a live Q&A discussion.
