The academic journal “Spiegelungen” (Reflections) is published on behalf of the IKGS and appears biannually. Thematically, the journal deals with the history and the cultural life of Germans in East Central and Southern East Europe in their diverse political, social, and cultural contexts through academic, literary, feuilletonistic, and documentary articles. Interdependencies between various ethnic, confessional, and linguistic groups are subjects of particular interest.
“Spiegelungen”, which has used a double-blind peer review process for its articles since issue 1/2016, dedicates each issue to a new thematic focus. The publication and contextualization of new literary works by authors who stem from the Danube-Carpathian region and/or deal with this region and its cultures through literary means represents a special focus of the journal.
