Institute for German Cultural Studies

Established in 1992 under the aegis of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Institute for German Cultural Studies (IGCS) is a research-oriented initiative designed both to recognize extraordinary cross-disciplinary strengths in the study of German culture at Cornell University and to foster cutting-edge scholarly exchange pertaining to the interdisciplinary study of German culture from the medieval era to the present. Events including large conferences, bi-weekly colloquia, focal workshops, special lectures, a faculty summer seminar, and an artist-in-residence program create a vibrant intellectual forum for deepening our understanding of German culture in its own right and in its broad significance for critical inquiry throughout the humanities and social sciences.
