Today, we find ourselves at a threshold where humanistic inquiry needs to be re-envisioned. Challenging assumptions and academic routines, the current pandemic has opened an interval to question and take stock of a discipline whose internal coherence resembles a loose amalgamation of different elements. What questions can bring the field together? Which debates are worth pursuing, researching, and teaching? The Institute of German Studies at Indiana University has been at the forefront of German Studies since the 1960s and pioneered the turn to interdisciplinary cultural studies far beyond the field of German.


Re-Envisioning German Studies presents exemplary investigations on ongoing research followed by discussions between scholars from different parts of the field. This series aims to identify the academic work that implicitly or explicitly promises to envision a timely German Studies. It examines new directions and shaping trends in the field and questions the assumptions that underlie research and debate in the humanities in the time to come.
