I am delighted to continue my work for GSNA as your new executive secretary!
Let me start with many thanks: to Karin Schutjer, for doing such a marvelous job and helping along the transition, everybody at the executive committee and particularly Burkhard Henke for helping me keep deadlines and disseminate information. Thanks to all of you for sending me ideas, suggestions, and conference panel proposals – but please no books or reviews. Please send them to Sean Franzel, who is doing a marvelous job.
The call for panel proposals for MLA 2017 has gone out already, but here is a list of current and upcoming deadlines:
- ASECS, 15 March 2016 for the 2017 convention
- GSA, 15 November 2016 for the 2017 convention
- MLA, 1 December 2016 for the 2018 convention
For the 2016 GSA, Elliott Schreiber and Edgar Landgraf have arranged an impressive series of panels on Goethe at Play. Three panels, sponsored by our society, have been submitted to the program committee. You can see details below. Clearly, we’ll be well represented in San Diego!
In the meantime, happy spring and please do not hesitate to contact me!
