Max Kade Research Institute: Germans Beyond Europe

New and Bestselling Books



About this Series

The Max Kade Research Institute Series is an outlet for scholarship that explores the history and culture of German-speaking communities in the Americas and across the globe, from the early modern period to the present. Books in this series examine the circulation of German language, literature, and ideas alongside their involvement in forces such as colonization, religious missions, nationalism, research, war, immigration, trade, and globalization. We welcome interdisciplinary scholarship that situates Germany in a transnational context through lenses such as material culture studies, critical race theory, the history of science, translation studies, and the digital humanities.

This series is a project of the Max Kade Research Institute located on Penn State’s campus. This Institute was founded in 1993 thanks to a grant from the Max Kade Foundation, New York.
