The English Goethe Society, whose lectures and symposia are published in its Publications, is the oldest learned society devoted to German Studies in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1886 in order to promote the study of Goethe's work, and its scope was subsequently expanded to other authors and periods of German literature. Whilst concentrating on the German Classical Age, the Society's interests include German literature and thought of the later nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Publications of the English Goethe Society (PEGS) publishes the revised lectures and prize winning essays that are first presented to its members. The Society tries to ensure that its programme not only represents the work of established scholars, but also provides an opportunity for younger scholars, including postgraduates, to address a scholarly audience.
