The NYU Department of German presents "Movement(s)", a two-day graduate student conference organized by Leonie Ettinger, Ben Schluter, and Simon Schoch.
About the event:
"Movement" is anything but a static concept, confined to a single definition or paradigm of interpretation. Rather, it is a concept on the move: an implicitly plural, essentially mobile notion demanding a supple approach from many sides. Scholars with a wide range of interests will join us in moving toward––or with––movement(s).
