The 42nd Annual WiG Conference was held on Oct. 26-29, 2017, in Banff, Alberta, Canada. 

Please join us for the 2017 Women in German conference in beautiful Banff. Lodging, meals, and conference meetings are in the Banff Centre, located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. This internationally renowned center supports artistic and creative practice, research, and innovation through residency programs, retreats, and conferences as well as public performances, readings, lectures, and exhibitions. The space contains a concert hall, the Walter Phillips Gallery, and the Leighton Artists' Colony. The Banff Centre also houses a variety of lodging and restaurant options as well as fitness facilities with hiking opportunities at its doorstep. Nestled partway up the mountains overlooking the resort town of Banff, this is the perfect place to reconnect with friends and colleagues, make new connections with vibrant scholars in our field, breathe in mountain air, and find inspiration.

Future Dates:
Oct. 18-21, 2018 in Sewanee, TN
