Since 1985, the New German Review has been a medium for graduate students,
post-docs, and junior faculty to share their ideas with the academic
community worldwide.

We publish articles on German, Scandinavian and Dutch literature, but we
strongly encourage contributions within the broader field of Germanic
studies, including art, history, culture, philosophy and linguistics. Book

**DEADLINE EXTENDED**CFP: [Collections] Domestic Violence in the Long
Eighteenth Century

I continue to seek submissions for an edited collection of essays
treating domestic violence in the long eighteenth century. Before there
was a category called "domestic violence," there were behaviors, ways of
speaking, issues of control, legal categories, economic conditions, and
occupational relationships that bordered on violence. The essays I seek
will consider early ways of representing, thinking and talking about what
will later be called domestic violence. I am especially interested in
essays that treat non-Western cultures, and/or medical, legal, or
religious ways of considering this topic.
