Report Participating at an international conference overseas and presenting a thesis in front of the international scientific community is an important experience - even more so in a field of research like German Studies. Intercultural German Studies, however, is as important and relevant as ever. Hence I am glad that my abstract to take part at the 2014 conference of the GiG in Ireland, one of the major conferences in the field of Intercultural German Studies, was accepted, especially since the topic of transit spaces portrayed an interesting aspect of modern society. Discussing my current approach with researchers from all around the world was an enriching experience that provided innovative aspects that could only become apparent because of the fruitful intercultural exchange.
