The University of Wisconsin-Madison Center for German and European Studies (CGES) is a joint effort of faculty representing various disciplines who pursue research and teaching interests in German and European Studies. The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) recently renewed our funding after nineteen years of success with interdisciplinary work on German and European Studies.

Devoted to the development of the next generation of scholars and the production of new knowledge relating to Germany and Europe, CGES continues to support research, teaching, and outreach in a broad range of fields and disciplines. The Center houses a series of themes which cover contemporary Germany and Europe from a transatlantic perspective, involving faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars.
