Announcing the New Editorial Team for The German Quarterly

Institution News,

AATG is pleased to announce that, starting 1 January 2025, The German Quarterly will have a new editorial team: Professors Jennifer M. William of Purdue University and Muriel Cormican of Texas Christian University will co-edit the journal. Both Jennifer William and Muriel Cormican are prolific scholars with broad intellectual interests, including literature, culture, and film; their respective histories; and current debates in literary and cultural studies.

Both editors are committed, in their own words, to "continuing the journal's serious commitment to promoting diversity, inclusion, and belonging in German Studies" and are interested in "working toward the goal of connecting German Studies more intentionally to other fields and crucial world events." In addition to fulfilling a variety of administrative roles at their home institutions, both scholars have considerable editorial experience including multiple edited volumes, among them their co-edited book The Tender Gaze: Compassionate Encounters on the German Screen, Page and Stage (Camden House 2021).

AATG would like to thank Professors Hester Baer and Karin Schutjer for their careful stewardship of The German Quarterly over the past three years. During this period, they oversaw the journal's move to digital publishing, produced well-received thematic issues on Black German Studies and Queer Studies (among other topics), greatly expanded the journal's open access offerings, and kept up its high editorial standards. AATG is highly appreciative of their hard work for the journal during their term.

AATG would also like to thank our search committee chaired by Carl Niekerk and including Lynne Tatlock, Elizabeth Loentz, Carol Anne Costabile, and Karin Baumgartner. Thanks to their dedication to The German Quarterly, we were able to yield a great outcome from our search.
