Virtual Book Launch 2020

Usually, members get together to raise a glass to celebrate the many monographs and edited volumes that are published in German Studies. In 2020, the annual book table went online as one of our virtual conference sessions. Watch the video above, and scroll through the PDF “file of fame” here.  There is plenty of new material for reading lists, library orders, and Christmas lists!  

The AGS also supports the publication of innovative research into German Studies in two other ways: through its financial support of first monographs, and through the books and special journal issues that have emerged from the lead panels at our annual conference. The latest journal article to emerge from our 2017 conference at Warwick is “Doing German Differently“, published in German Life and Letters.


From 1998-2002 the AGS also published its own proceedings in collaboration with Peter Lang:
