About the German Screen Studies special interest group (SIG)


Arising out of the GSSN, this BAFTSS SIG 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. The Group's members are listed here.
