About the Journal

The academic journal Recherches Germaniques was founded by Gonthier-Louis Fink in Strasbourg in 1971. As a European capital and a border town boasting a renowned university, Strasbourg is a hub for cultural exchanges between France and Germany. Drawing inspiration from the prominent role of Strasbourg in Europe, the journal wishes to serve as a forum for German studies conducted both in France and abroad.

Focusing on research in literature, cultural history, and the history of ideas in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland…), Recherches Germaniques presents previously unpublished work by junior and senior researchers from the five continents. The journal publishes work drawing from traditional academic approaches to German literature and culture, but also promotes more recent perspectives and innovative research fields. It encourages cross-national, comparative Franco-German approaches and interdisciplinary perspectives, and includes a specific section dedicated to studies about Alsace. Published papers discuss historical periods ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Recherches Germaniques is a bi-annual journal, with a varia issue (featuring papers on various topics and/or a selection of papers on a specific subject) and a thematic special issue. It features double-blind peer-reviewed articles written in French or German, showcasing the journal’s scientific excellence.

Recherches Germaniques is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in German studies, literature, comparative literature, cultural history or philosophy, at academics and enlightened readers interested in the literature, culture and history of German-speaking countries.
