 Notic board

Here you can leave messages or make announcements or advertise new books. Are you looking for someone to fill in a questionnaire if you carry out a survey? Planning a meeting or a conference or a summer school?

Tell us, and we will put it for you on the notice board. Our Bulletin is online, too, so it will reach a target group beyond the SIDG. Just send a mail to the editors [editor [at]] and the secretary [secretary [at]] referring to “notice board".


☞ Announcements aiming at being published on this website should be sent to the webmaster under secretary [at]

  • We are excited to announce that our next SIDG congress will be held in Bucharest / Romania in 2021. Our thanks go to our colleagues, Prof Nicolai Saramandu and Dr Manuela Nevaci, who are the main responsible for hosting the conference.

    All important information will be found here on our website and on Facebook.

  • We sadly announce the death of our esteemed German colleague professor Wolfgang Viereck, who was one of the founding members of our Society in the 1990ies. With him, we have not only lost a great and esteemed scholar but also a dear friend. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family.

  • The SIDG mourns the loss of professor Mario Alinei, Italy, who died on August 8, 2018, two days before his 92th birthday. He was one of the founding members of our Society.

    Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

  • In accordance with our publishers, de Gruyter Mouton, we have recently updated our general Journal Style Sheet. As many of you were already aware, various sections were no longer up-to-date, e.g., footnotes (not endnotes!), and minor updates have been made throughout. A new section has also be added: section 9, audio and video.

    Please note that in future you will have to have your article checked by a native speaker before sending it for peer-review. We can no longer provide this service free of charge and would like to ask you to provide us with the checker's name and e-mail so we can contact him / her if need be. This also extends to the abstract. 

    Thanks for your cooperation!
