Membership and Dues

The Goethe Society of North America currently has approximately 250 members worldwide and welcomes new members at any time. Members receive the Goethe Yearbook, special issues of the Yearbook, as well as Goethe News and Notes, the Society’s newsletter, which publishes calls for papers and other announcements. New members are automatically added to the Goethe Society’s listserv.

To join the Society simply contact Christian Weber, Secretary-Treasurer, or any of the other Officers.

 Annual dues are collected by calendar year and should be remitted in US Dollars only, either directly through PayPal or by mail to Prof. Cristian Weber (Department of Modern Languages & Linguistics, Florida State University, P.O. Box 3061540, Tallahassee, FL 32306). For membership categories see the drop down menu below. Additional PayPal fees apply for all categories except “Patrons.”

Please note that we now offer 3-year memberships from 2017 through 2019 for all categories, which include PayPal fees. This option will be available only every three years, i.e., in each year of the Atkins Goethe Conference (2017, 2020, …). To access the payment links, scroll all the way down. If you choose this option, your membership dues are covered until the next Atkins Goethe Conference.

Please consider also making a donation on top of your dues payment. Your additional support will ensure the financial health of the Society and allow us to continue to offer such services as the Yearbook, the essay prize, the book series, and graduate student support without having to raise membership fees. Thank you so much in advance.
