Our literary studies list is known for its exceptional quality and thematic breadth. Every year, we publish a large number of works in a range of media, with a focus on German literature and culture, and comparative literature from the Middle Ages to the present day.
The list also addresses interdisciplinary topics such as law and literature, exile research and memory studies, and combines European and North American perspectives in both German and English-language editions. This makes our portfolio particularly attractive for international researchers.
