German Screen Studies SIG



Convenors: Helen Hughes (University of Surrey), Elizabeth Ward (University of Leeds)

List of Founding Members


The German Screen Studies SIG emerges out of the German Screen Studies Network, an independent international network founded in 2011 as a platform for research and public engagement activities relating to German-language screen media. The BAFTSS group acts as the GSSN’s principal UK research forum, providing a focus at the BAFTSS conference and related events for national and international scholarship on German-language screen media.

Following each BAFTSS annual conference, BAFTSS German Screen Studies SIG presentations and papers will be proposed for publication in guest-edited issues of selected academic journals.
