Gendered Immigration in Pre-20th Century German Literature and Culture
This panel will investigate representations of immigration to and emigration from Germany in the pre-20th century period. While much research has investigated German encounters with the other on foreign soil through travel, this panel instead explores the implications of permanent relocation and its effects on national, racial, ethnic, religious, and gender identities inside and outside of Germany.

The Golden Age is the Tenth Annual Postgraduate Conference hosted by the English Programme, University of Dundee, in conjunction with the Scottish Word and Image Group. It is intended to investigate the diverse applications and conceptions of the term 'The Golden Age'. The phrase most obviously resonates with the theme of nostalgia, which is popularly understood as a wistful longing for the past but which also denotes homesickness. While 'The Golden Age' typically conjures up idealized and nostalgic visions of the past, it is equally suggestive of a discontented present, and it even gestures forward to utopian visions of future golden ages.
