Women in German Yearbook is a refereed publication presenting a wide range of feminist approaches to all aspects of German literature, culture, and language, including pedagogy. Reflecting the interdisciplinary perspectives that inform feminist German studies, each issue contains critical inquiries employing gender and other analytical categories to examine the work, history, life, literature, and arts of the German-speaking world.

Volume 32 includes a special section on race in German Studies. Parallel to this special section, a few pieces that are very different format than a standard article were published exclusively on the  website. These include an interview (with an MP3 link), a book review essay, and a personal essay. You may find them here:
