Call for Papers: Women and Gender in German Studies

Camden House is pleased to announce a new book series that seeks to publish monographs and edited collections dedicated to women and gender in German Studies. We are particularly interested in critical analyses that reflect the strength and diversity of works by German-speaking women authors from the eighteenth to the twenty-frst centuries, but we also welcome feminist approaches to canonical literature as well as scholarly contributions on women’s history.

We invite submissions on women and gender in literature, history, flm, and the visual arts in connection with a wide range of topics, including politics, economics, religion and spirituality, race and nationality, migration and transnationality, aesthetics, violence and war, and sexuality and the body

Please send proposals via email attachments to Camden House editor Julia cook at [email protected] using the book proposal form available here.

Women and National Socialism in Postwar German Literature

Gender, Memory, and Subjectivity

By Katherine Stone

In recent years, historians have revealed the many ways in which German women supported National Socialism-as teachers, frontline auxiliaries, and nurses, as well as in political organizations. This book investigates why the question of women’s complicity in National Socialism has struggled to capture the collective imagination, examining how a variety of female authors have conceptualized the role of women in the Third Reich.

Willful Girls

Gender and Agency in Contemporary Anglo-American and German Fiction

By Emily Jeremiah

What does it mean to “become woman” in the context of neoliberalism and postfeminism? What is the role of will in this process? Willful Girls explores the process of “becoming woman” through an analysis of the depiction of girls and young women in contemporary Anglo-American and German literary texts.
