The ‘Politics of Contemporary German Culture’ conference was held at the University of St Andrews on 26-27 April 2019 and was co-organised by Dr Dora Osborne (St Andrews), Dr Frauke Matthes (Edinburgh), and Dr Katya Krylova (Aberdeen). The conference focused on the issue of how the contemporary cultural landscape in Germany and Austria is being shaped by current political concerns and to consider, through dialogue between academics and practitioners, how this affects German Studies as a discipline and a practice.

The conference was made possible thanks to the generous support of the AHRC Open World Research Initiative “Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Community”, the School of Modern Languages at the University of St Andrews, the Moray Endowment Fund of the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Aberdeen.
