German Studies Association

The German Studies Association is the multi- and interdisciplinary association of scholars in German, Austrian, and Swiss history, literature, culture studies, political science, and economics. GSA holds an annual Conference and publishes a scholarly journal – German Studies Review – as well as a Newsletter. Members are generally professors at universities in colleges in North America, although there are several hundred members in Europe and Asia. Membership is open to anyone interested in German studies. GSA is a member of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).

GSA is a non-profit educational organization which promotes research and study of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. The GSA Endowment Fund provides financial support to Association projects, the annual conference, and general operations. Gifts and donations to GSA are tax deductible contributions in the United States and many other countries.

The Conference of the Association is held in the Fall, generally between mid-September and mid-October. About 150 sessions, each with three scholarly papers, a moderator, and a commentator, are distributed among the main research areas of the Association. Papers may be offered in English or German.
