German Monitor (founded in 1979) is a series for themed edited volumes on literature, culture and politics in the German-speaking world since 1945. Our approach is inclusive: some volumes focus on single authors, political figures or genres; other volumes explore themes such as narratives of trauma, German left-wing terrorism, local/global narratives, and cultural relations between Germany and Austria and neighbouring countries.
We welcome proposals for interdisciplinary volumes as well as those with a specifically literary, cultural or political focus. Many of our contributors are based in German Studies, others in disciplines such as Comparative Literature, Film Studies, Musicology, History, Museum Studies, and Political Science. We encourage volumes that push disciplinary boundaries, and those that consider the roles that Germany, Austria, and Switzerland play in Europe today.
The book series has a system of double peer-reviewing. We publish volumes in German or English.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL,
Questions about your manuscript and proposals can also be directed to the Editor in Chief,
The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
