Who We Are
The International Walter Benjamin Society brings together scholars and interested readers from around the world. The Society sponsors major biannual conferences on Walter Benjamin and related topics, as well as serving as a clearinghouse for information on other conferences, many of them organized by members of the Society. The Society’s website also publishes announcements—and in some cases reviews—of new publications on Benjamin.
