Dynamiken der Vermittlung: Koblenzer Studien zur Germanistik
Edited by Prof. Dr Uta Schaffers, Prof. Dr Pamela Steen, Prof. Dr Eva L. Wyss, apl. Prof. Dr Hajo Diekmannshenke, Prof. Dr Wolf-Andreas Liebert, Prof. Dr Dr Stefan Neuhaus

The concept of the series responds to the multiplication of ways of life which, in the context of progressive differentiation, medialization and globalization, has led to a profound change in social conditions and places new demands on the subject of German studies.

The aim of the interdisciplinary series is to reflect on the evolving forms and mediation processes of language and literature in their dynamics of mediation, also and especially in the mass media, from the perspective of German studies with a cultural studies orientation.

Literatur – Kultur – Text
Kleine Schriften zur Literaturwissenschaft

Edited by Prof. Dr phil. Axel Dunker

This series of smaller works by younger literary scholars provides exemplary contributions to the cultural-scientific contextualisation of literary studies and at the same time offers a forum for publishing the research results of excellent university theses.

The theoretical horizon of the works in this series is open: it ranges from discourse analysis to aspects of postcolonial and gender studies to attempts to combine hermeneutic with post-structuralist approaches.

Literatur und Medien
Edited by Prof. Dr Volker Wehdeking, Prof. Dr Christof Hamann, Prof. Dr Gunter E. Grimm and Prof. Dr Rolf Parr

The combination of literary studies and media studies issues is currently of rapidly increasing relevance. Particularly outstanding theses from the Stuttgart Media University (HdM) and the University of Duisburg-Essen combine research on international contemporary literature with aspects of intermediality and media change.

Nova Classica
Marburger Fundus für Studium und Forschung in der Altertumswissenschaft

Edited by Magnus Frisch, Rainer Nickel, Felix M. Prokoph und Kai Ruffing. Co-Founded by Boris Dunsch (†)

The aim of the Nova Classica series is to make central but poorly accessible titles from classical studies accessible again through reprints and – if possible – revised new editions.

To the series
Studien zu Literatur und Film der Gegenwart
Edited by Prof. Dr Stefan Neuhaus

The series focuses on what is closest to us today – contemporary literature and film. It includes not only works considered particularly artistic, but also popular reading and film material, texts and films aimed at suspense and entertainment. The films and texts discussed by the works in the series are considered relevant to contemporary literature and film, and thus also to the society and times in which they were created and received.

We wholeheartedly welcome unsolicited manuscripts and book proposals.
