Published/Hosted by Universitätsverlag Winter GmbH.
The journal Amerikastudien / American Studies is the official publication organ of the German Association for American Studies. What started out as as annual Jahrbuch für Amerikastudien has changed into a quarterly with more than a 1000 subscriptions in Europe and the United States. With volume 42 (1997), Amerikastudien / American Studies has returned to its original publisher, Universitätsverlag Winter in Heidelberg, after years of publication with Metzler Verlag in Stuttgart (1974-81) and Fink in Munich (1972-96). The journal is devoted to an interdisciplinary concept of American Studies and covers all areas from literary and cultural criticism, history, political science, and linguistics to the teaching of American Studies in the classroom. Thematic issues alternate with regular ones. In addition to reviews of and review essays on major publications, the review section also features regular surveys of the contributions of German-language scholars to American Studies. The second issue of each volume contains a yearly bibliography of publications in American Studies from German-speaking countries. Universitätsverlag Winter also publishes the American Studies monograph series. Both the journal and the monograph series present an indispensable European dimension of the field of American Studies.
