PGF Regional Groups

Below, please find the clustering of the inaugural PGF Regional Groups!

The idea is that people from the same region of Germany form a group in which to meet and discuss their work. This will not only create more opportunities for academic networking and telling those new to the field about the DGfA and the PGF, but also provide ways of getting and giving feedback from and to other young Americanists in a way that will not be as demanding in terms of time, infrastructure, and money as the annual PGF.
