»Transatlantic Literary History: Notes | Essays | Conversations« is a new blog that engages notable scholars in an (asynchronic) exchange about fundamental questions within transatlantic literary research. The blog acknowledges that transatlantic literary history is a field that has yet to be fully established within German Studies. In an inaugural series of eight articles (listed below), the publication has already pointed at exemplary constellations, key concepts, and at emerging obstacles. At the same time, significant authors and researchers who – along with their work – have crossed the Atlantic have been considered, specific material and physical limitations to transatlantic research have been indicated, and the potential for complementary approaches has been demonstrated.


The blog is based at Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster and supported by VolkswagenStiftung.



A new series of articles is planned to commence this upcoming fall.
