The German Quarterly invites proposals (400-word abstracts) for articles to appear in a special issue devoted to Premodern German Studies, edited by CJ Jones (University of Notre Dame) and Annegret Oehme (University of Washington).  

We welcome research on any aspect of the German-speaking world before 1700, including European border regions, German speakers outside of Europe, and exchanges between German-speaking communities and speakers of other languages. The editors aim to bring together a set of articles that showcases a broad array of different time periods, scholarly approaches, and source types, especially interdisciplinary approaches, new theories and methodologies, and/or non-canonical and understudied sources. We also welcome submissions that focus on pedagogical questions.

Abstracts of no more than 400 words explaining the argument and significance of the proposed article should be submitted to both editors by email  ( and by Monday, February 28, 2022. Submissions are welcome in English and German.

Articles will be due to the editors in fall 2022, they will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process, and the issue is slated to appear in 2023.
