On Friday 9 June 2023, the Vereniging van Germanisten aan Nederlandse Universiteiten (VGNU), together with the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, will organise the 18th Student Conference (StuK), attended by representatives from all Dutch universities.

The StuK offers graduates the opportunity to present the results of their Bachelor's or Master's theses for discussion in a larger circle of academics and students from different universities. At the same time, students can gain valuable insights into the "workshops" of other final theses as well as into the related academic discussions.

As every year, there will be a large number of contributions from literary and cultural studies, linguistics, and related fields.

Once again this year, prizes will be awarded for the best papers. The jury for the awards is made up of teachers and researchers from the participating Dutch universities. The prizes are:

  • 1st place BA lecture: Euro 200,00 / 2nd place BA lecture: Euro 100,00
  • 1st place MA lecture: Euro 200,00 / 2nd place MA lecture: Euro 100,00

Prof. Ewout van der Knaap (UU, Chairman of the VGNU), Dr. Florian Lippert (RuG)
