"Narrating Colonial Encounters: Germany in the Pacific Islands," is the title of a conference to be held 19-21 May 2005, at the University of Washington. This international and interdisciplinary conference will explore colonial encounters between Germany and the Pacific Islands, focusing on the rich body of literary and anthropological documents that narrate the encounter. It will bring together scholars and artists from a variety of disciplines and institutions around the world. In addition to the academic panels, there will be a public component, with a possible film showing by an award-winning Pacific writer and filmmaker. The organizers are Miriam KAHN (anthropology) and Sabine WILKE (Germanics). Those interested in attending the conference can contact Kahn at
