Recovering an Important Body of Work in German Studies: Reissuing the UNC Studies in Germanic Languages & Literatures Series

The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 123 books in German Studies from the UNC Studies in Germanic Languages and Literatures series.

In 1953, UNC Press and the UNC Department of Germanic & Slavic Languages and Literatures started the UNC Studies in Germanic Languages and Literatures series. Over the next fifty years, the series published 127 monographs, anthologies, and critical editions. The series strove for breadth in its coverage of scholarship in the Germanic languages, covering an array of topics including medieval and modern literature, theater, linguistics, philology, onomastics, and the history of ideas. Despite the impact the books made in the field, the series was discontinued in 2004. With this project, these two partners, joined by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Library, will reissue the series in print and open access digital editions, making these books discoverable and accessible to a new generation of German studies scholars and students.
