During the 1930s and 1940s, the publishing sphere in Germany had to adapt to substantial ideological imperatives. It was subject to the control of various often rivaling institutions of censorship. These censoring institutions employed literary scholars to observe and influence the growing production of books and magazines. This paper reconstructs the practices these literary scholars employed for dealing with contemporary literature in an ideologically conditioned setting. It engages with the still largely unexplored relation between academic socialization, interpretative practices and politically motivated interventions.
