The German Graduate Research Seminar is an informal gathering organised by graduates and open to all. We meet several times a term and aim to provide a space for relaxed discussion of anything related to German studies. There is no fixed format, but meetings tend to centre on short texts or papers. Proposals for future seminars are welcome, especially from new members.

For the programme of upcoming talks and an archive of past events, please see the GGRS page at talks.cam
