New Directions in German Studies: A Continuum Book Series
This book series will offer a forum for the publication of new works in all areas of German Studies (German, Austrian, and Swiss literature, culture, and cinema from any period). “New Directions in German Studies” welcomes proposals that offer a fresh perspective on any vibrant aspect of the field. A long and venerable tradition of Germanistik has been opened up in exciting ways in the past few decades.
The series will tap into that tradition and its growth into “German Studies,” reframing aspects of the discipline in light of concerns germane to these fields: German, Austrian, or Swiss national identity and aesthetics; historical approaches to German-language literature and cinema; the legacy of the Holocaust and its influence on aesthetics; politics and aesthetics; issues of canonization and periodization; the place of gender, queer, and postcolonial studies within German Studies; the aesthetics of exile; myth and national identity; cross-cultural dialogues and aesthetics; material culture; German-language aesthetics and globalization.
We welcome interdisciplinary approaches to the analysis of the rich intellectual and cultural histories of the German-speaking countries and areas. We are interested in projects focusing on hitherto underrepresented authors and filmmakers as well as those that seek to reframe canonical works in light of new perspectives and methodologies. We are particularly interested in monographs, though edited volumes that are clearly relevant to contemporary discussions in the field will also be considered.
