Joint Statement on Fixed-Term Contracts in German Academia

The German Association for the Study of British Cultures has signed the open letter “Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz abschaffen – Grundfinanzierung der Universitäten stärken.” The joint statement on the precarity of academic careers in Germany calls for an open discussion and reform of the German law on fixed-term contracts in academia, not only in the wake of the #IchBinHanna movement.

How Cultural Studies Came to Germany: Historical Documents

The texts, tables and images presented here accompany the publication of the 2021/1 issue of the Journal for the Study of British Cultures: “Histories and Trajectories: British Cultural Studies in Germany”. The documents were selected by the author of the essay “How Cultural Studies Came to Germany” either because they are difficult to find, or simply for their visual poignancy.

If you have any issues with (or questions about) the documents, please contact the web admin by email. All images can be enlarged by clicking on them, and longer documents are provided as PDFs.
