‘Women in German Literature’ series broadens its focus

Peter Lang series Women in German Literature, edited by Prof. Helen Watanabe-O’Kelly at the University of Oxford, is expanding its remit to broadly cover German cultural production and to now include studies relating to gender and sexuality. The series first launched in 1998 offering monographs and edited collections in German and English on women’s issues in German literature. As of volume 21, the series will continue under the new title Women, Gender and Sexuality in German Literature and Culture. Its broadened focus will foreground excellent research by scholars working in Gender Studies, Queer Studies and Sexuality Studies within a German context, thereby expanding on and complementing the existing volumes in the series.
