Welcome to New German Critique

Widely considered the leading journal in its field, New German Critique is an interdisciplinary journal that focuses on twentieth- and twenty-first-century German studies and publishes on a wide array of subjects, including literature, mass culture, film, and other visual media; literary theory and cultural studies; Holocaust studies; art and architecture; political and social theory; intellectual history and philosophy. Established in the early 1970s, the journal has played a significant role in introducing US readers to the Frankfurt School and remains an important forum for debate in the humanities and social sciences.

The publication of New German Critique is made possible by funding from Cornell University’s College of Arts and Sciences and the support of Cornell's Department of German Studies.
