Community home page

The Institute for German Cultural Studies is a research-oriented initiative at Cornell University designed to foster interdisciplinary exchange pertaining to the study of German culture from the medieval era to the present. Events ranging from large conferences, bi-weekly colloquia, focal workshops, special lectures, a faculty summer seminar co-sponsored by the German Academic Exchange Service, and an artist-in-residence program create a vibrant intellectual forum for deepening our understanding of German culture in its own right and in its broad significance for critical inquiry throughout the humanities and social sciences. Participants include scholars, students, and community members engaged in diverse fields such as German Studies, Comparative Literature, Philosophy, History, Music, Theatre, Film & Dance, Anthropology, Sociology, Government, Science & Technology Studies, Jewish Studies, Feminist, Gender & Sexuality Studies, Africana Studies, and Architecture, and they additionally reflect international partnerships with selected universities in Germany.
