Contributions are invited for the journal. The editors are interested in feminist and/or queer approaches to all aspects of German Studies, including literary, cultural, media and language studies, including pedagogy, as well as topics that involve the study of gender and sexuality from other disciplinary contexts. This may include but is not limited to: work on colonialism, postcolonial, and transnational theory; performance theory and theater studies; film and media history; architecture, space, and visual culture; or on the contemporary cultural and political scene in German-speaking countries.

The deadline for receipt of manuscripts to be included in the next issue is middle of January. Early submission is strongly encouraged, and the editors are happy to receive contributions throughout the year. Please be sure to prepare your manuscript for anonymous review. Manuscripts should not exceed 10,000 words (typed, double- spaced), including Notes, Works Cited, and origianl German quotations in notes (with translations in the body). Please follow the latest edition (8) of the MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing as well as the manuscript preparation guidelines posted below. Submit both Notes and Works Cited. The journal adheres to an English-only policy. Even though we will send manuscripts for anonymous review in either English or German, binding commitment to publish is contingent on submission of a final manuscript in English.
