Transatlantische historische Studien

The German Historical Institute (GHI) Washington is a center for the advanced study of history. Since 1992, the Institute’s book series Transatlantische historische Studien has provided a venue for research on transatlantic history and American history from early modern times to the present. Works span the entire range of research fields from political and diplomatic history to gender history, transnational history, and postcolonial history. The THS is a forum for thematic and methodological innovation and it has long been a major platform for German specialists in US and transatlantic history.

Manuscripts are peer-reviewed. The series publishes books written in either English or German. Manuscripts that are awarded the Franz Steiner Preis fuer Transatlantische Geschichte will be included in the publication series. The series is now published open access.
