CfN: Hermann Boeschenstein Medal

The CAUTG is pleased to invite Nominations for the Hermann Boeschenstein Medal for Exceptional Contributions to German Studies in Canada.

The medal is awarded occasionally, and not necessarily every year, at the discretion of a Selection Committee appointed by the CAUTG Executive, traditionally comprised of the Past President as Chair, the current President and Secretary of the CAUTG and two other colleagues. The medal is inscribed “Hermann Boeschenstein (1900-1982): Teacher, Scholar, Humanitarian.” It is awarded to a person (normally a Germanist at a Canadian university) who has made exceptional contributions, in the humanitarian spirit of Hermann Boeschenstein, to the welfare of our Association, and to the advancement of German language, literature and culture in Canada.

Nominations to be considered in the current year, should reach the Chair of the Committee, Gaby Pailer (, by March 15, 2017, and should be accompanied by supporting documentation as appropriate (please feel free to contact me about the nature and extent of such documentation prior to making a nomination). The Selection Committee will consider all nominations and report its decision to the CAUTG Executive.

Prof. Dr. Gaby Pailer, University of British Columbia in Vancouver (, Past President of the CAUTG and Chair of the Boeschenstein Medal Selection Committee
