Arbeitskreis Kulturwissenschaftl. Zeitschriftenforschung


The Working Group on Periodical Studies (Arbeitskreis Kulturwissenschaftliche Zeitschriftenforschung) brings together about thirty (as of now mostly German-speaking) scholars working on the history, function and aesthetics of cultural and scientific journals. Participants come from various fields of the humanities and convene once a year (2017 in Berlin, 2018 in Essen, 2019 in Zürich).

The Working Group is co-hosted by the Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung (ZfL), Berlin and the Institute of Advanced Study in the Humanities (KWI), Essen.
