Monatshefte has been published continuously since 1899 at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. The first issue, published December 1899, was called “Pädagogische Monatshefte—Zeitschrift für das deutschamerikanische Schulwesen.” Though we’re now a quarterly journal devoted to German literature and culture, Monatshefte has retained its place at the forefront of American Germanistik.

In addition to the articles on topics from all periods of German literature and book reviews of current scholarship in German Studies which can be found in each issue of Monatshefte, the Winter issue (#4) of each volume contains our annual Personalia listing. Personalia is an indispensable listing of new hires, retirements, promotions and visiting professors. Personalia also contains a comprehensive listing of German Studies faculty and departments in the USA and Canada, and it comes with a list of all Ph.D. theses that have been defended in the preceding year.

Monatshefte is published under the auspices of the Department of German at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
