Book Series

The Goethe Society sponsors a book series published by Bucknell University Press. See the announcement here.

The Society has been seeking ways, in light of the ever-narrowing publishing possibilities, to support research on Goethe/ eighteenth-century studies and finally decided to collaborate with Bucknell. On average, we will publish about 1-2 books a year in the series. The goal of this series is to publish innovative research that contextualizes the "Age of Goethe," whether within the fields of literature, history (including art history and history of science), philosophy, art, music, or politics. We encourage the submission of high-quality manuscripts and welcome all approaches and perspectives. We are especially interested in interdisciplinary projects, creative approaches to archival or original source materials, theoretically informed scholarship, work that introduces previously undiscovered materials, or projects that re-examine traditional epochal boundaries or open new channels of interpretation. Authors should send manuscript proposals and one sample chapter (electronic versions are preferred) to the editor of the book series,

From the Book Series Editor

Our latest book, Aesthetics and Secular Millenialism by Benjamin K. Bennett, was announced in the spring newsletter. Since then we have accepted one manuscript, pending approval by the Bucknell Press board, another about to go out for review, and several projects that claim to be waiting in the wings from scholars at a variety of ranks.

We continue to encourage submissions from our members, their friends, and those who find us in other ways. We welcome all approaches and perspectives. Please contact me if you are interested in submitting a manuscript.
