Focus and Scope

Verges: Germanic and Slavic Studies in Review is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal published by the graduate students in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Victoria. Verges welcomes a diverse range of topics and issues from all areas of Germanic or Slavic studies.

Recognizing the benefits of both interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary contributions made by students outside Germanic and Slavic studies, we extend our call to all students including upper-level undergraduate students, and those from community colleges and universities across Canada.
