Series re-launch: Women, Gender and Sexuality in German Literature and Culture

Peter Lang welcomes book proposals for the series

Women, Gender and Sexuality in German Literature and Culture

Series Editor: Helen Watanabe-O’Kelly, University of Oxford

Women, Gender and Sexuality in German Literature and Culture continues the mission of the book series Women in German Literature, which launched nearly twenty years ago. Originally focused primarily on women writers, the series is now expanding its remit to cover German cultural production more broadly and to include studies relating to gender and sexuality.

The series welcomes proposals for monographs and rigorously edited essay collections focusing on the work of women and LGBTQ+ creators as well as the representation of women, gender and/or sexuality in literature, media and culture from the Middle Ages to the present day. The series contributes to efforts to broaden the German canon by publishing pioneering studies of relatively unknown writers, artists and filmmakers and cutting-edge assessments of more established figures. Studies of the history of women in German-speaking culture, such as the participation of women in German intellectual life and the struggle for equal rights, as well as historical considerations of gender and sexuality in German-speaking countries, are also encouraged.

Editorial Board: Helga Druxes (Williams College), Georgina Paul (University of Oxford), Helmut Puff (University of Michigan) and Yasemin Yildiz (University of California, Los Angeles)

Proposals for monographs and edited collections are welcome. We publish in both German and English. Please come by the Peter Lang bookstand at the AGS at the University of Warwick on 6-7 September and at the GSA in Atlanta on 5-8 October to hear more about the series.
