Description
The philological program of Erich Schmidt Verlag looks back upon a far reaching and profound tradition. Publications in the area of German Studies debate im­portant and current topics of medieval studies, linguistics, and literary studies, including culture studies, as well as interdisciplinary topics. The Erich Schmidt Verlag has established renowned series such as 'Philologische Studien und Quellen' or 'Texte des späten Mittelalters und der frühen Neuzeit'. The well-known textbooks were united under the proprietary name “ESVbasics”. Clear and fresh in appearance, these concise works on highest academic standards are perfect companions for today’s busy scholar. Highly reputed 'Archiv für das Studium der neueren Sprachen und Literaturen' and 'Zeitschrift für deutsche Philologie' (founded in 1846 and 1868 respectively) belong to the oldest philological journals, but are far from being antiquated. Linguistic debate finds a forum in our journal 'Deutsche Sprache'.
