To the newest state of Glossen: The release of the latest issue has been delayed for various reasons beyond our control. We thank the contributors for their patience and understanding. At the same time, we are pleased to announce that we have gained another dedicated online editor in Dr. Janine Ludwig of Dickinson College at the University of Bremen, who will actively support our long-serving and deserving online editor Sarah McGaughey at Dickinson College.


We are currently working on:

Glossen #45: „‘First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin’:  Transatlantic Soundtracks Since 1945“ – publication in summer 2020.

Glossen #46: Special issue „Wanderlust und Wanderlast: Transatlantische Soundtracks after 1945“. Publication is expected by late fall 2020.


We continue to accept submissions for future publications, in particular for Glossen #47: „’Zwei Seelen wohnen, ach! In meiner Brust’: Doppelidentitäten und Identitätspolitik.“ Deadline for submission of abstracts is August 15th and for articles November 1st, 2020. Please find the CFP here: CFP Glossen – Doppelidentitäten
