  • Conferences & Symposia highlight areas of research from our own faculty and include speakers from related disciplines at Georgetown and other universities.
  • Graduate Student Conferences bring together students and faculty from Georgetown with students from German studies programs across the U.S. 
  • BMW Center for German and European Studies at Georgetown offers many events that are of interest to faculty and students in the German Department.
