The topics covered by the 28 contributions can be grouped as follows: (1) German studies as culture studies; (2) an examination of some instructional models for German studies on the university level; (3) the future of German studies; (4) German teachers on all levels; (5) teacher training; (6) the status and future of undergraduate and graduate German departments; (7) the role and function of linguistics in German studies; (8) German literature and comparative literature (9) career alternatives for students of German; and (10) articulation between one level of German instruction and the next.
