Diversity, Decolonization, and the German Curriculum (DDGC) is a forum that brings together scholars and practitioners at all stages in their career from North American and international institutions in order to answer questions such as: What place should diversity and decolonization have in German Studies? What existing models help diversify and decolonize German Studies? What movement can be cultivated from such work and what role does/can German Studies play in shaping broader social justice initiatives at institutions across North America?
DDGC broadly considers work in German applied language, cultural, feminist, queer, gender, disability, Black, Indigenous, and/or ethnic studies engaging the questions above. The primary goal is to leverage integral theoretical discussion into concrete lessons, modules, mission statements or manifestos suitable to engender curricular and institutional change nationally and internationally.
