transcript Verlag

In transcript Verlag, we have found an important partner, whose titles expand our social sciences and humanities programme in contemporary fields in particular. Our collaboration with the publishing house began in 2014. Alongside frontlist and backlist book titles, the transcript portfolio on degruyter.com includes eight innovative journals and their archives. In 2019, we also added the titles published under transcript’s Bielefeld University Press imprint.
