Since 1985, the New German Review has been a medium for graduate students,
post-docs, and recent PhDs 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 history, culture, philosophy and linguistics. Book
reviews, new translations, and interviews also form an essential part of
our publication.
