Feminist German Studies (formerly Women in German Yearbook) is a refereed publication presenting a wide range of intersectional feminist approaches to all aspects of German literature, culture, and language, including pedagogy. Reflecting the interdisciplinary perspectives that inform feminist German studies, each issue contains critical inquiries employing gender and other analytical categories to examine the work, history, life, literature, and arts of the German-speaking world.

Feminist German Studies publishes two issues per year. The regular issue appears in Fall/Winter and a guest-edited special issue appears in Spring/Summer.

Book reviews are published in the Fall/Winter regular issue. (See additional information below.)
