Founded in 1899, Monatshefte für deutschsprachige Literatur und Kultur is the oldest continuing journal of German studies in the U.S. It offers scholarly articles dealing with the literatures and cultures of German-speaking countries from both most advanced and traditional theoretical and historical perspectives. Monatshefte is open to all scholarly approaches that help to improve our understanding of literature and culture. Each issue contains extensive book reviews of current scholarship in German Studies. Every Winter issue features Personalia, a listing of college and university German Department personnel from across the U.S. and Canada, and special surveys and articles dealing with professional concerns.

Monatshefte für deutschsprachige Literatur und Kultur is published four times each year. The Journal contains articles dealing with all aspects of German literature, language, and culture within the European context. Final acceptance and subsequent publication of each manuscript submitted to the Journal depends on favorable review by peer reviewers and the general editor. Each volume contains on average six full-length scholarly articles and about twenty-five in-depth book reviews. The winter issues feature “Personalia,” i.e., an overview with stastistic information on the personel of all US and Canadian academic institutions teaching German, including information about doctoral dissertations, MA- and BA exams, promotions, new appointments, visitors, retirements, and a necrology. Any paper that is accepted or rejected will have been reviewed by at least two members of the editorial board and/or the national and international advisory board. Original articles only are accepted for publication. Languages of publication are English and German. For more information, please see Monatshefte.org.
