“The study of linguistics makes connections across a wide array of scholarly concerns, from the humanities to many of the social and behavioral sciences to biology, physics, engineering, and even medicine. The study of language is central to a large number of rapidly advancing fields, such as neuroscience, cognitive science, and computer science. These overlapping domains make it challenging to stay informed about every applicable area and great deal of this work has moved online with the most recent scholarship, research, and statistics appearing in online databases.

Oxford Bibliographies . . . offers more than other bibliography initiatives on- and offline by providing expert commentary to help students and scholars find, negotiate, and assess the large amount of information readily available to them.”

The German Literary Expressionism Online database contains 151 journals, yearbooks, collections and anthologies from the early 20th century in full text. Many of the most important literary figures of the 20th century made their first literary appearances in periodicals. They included Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Gottfried Benn, Georg Heym, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Georg Trakl, and Franz Werfel. Authors, philosophers, theologians, politicians, historians, art historians, psychologists, and many others not belonging to the central circle of expressionists, such as Martin Buber, Gerhart Hauptmann, Theodor Heuss, Hugo von Hofmannsthal, Gustav Landauer, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Arthur Schnitzler, also wrote for the new journals. Included in the database are journals with literary aspirations, such as “Der Sturm” and “Die Weissen Blätter,” as well as journals with political objectives, such as “Die Aktion.” The database serves as a source on German literature of the Modern era and can be used for the study of the history of art, theatre, film, dance and music between 1910 and 1930. Materials contained in the database are presented as online facsimiles, with a variety of search possibilities, including full text. A scholarly introduction and short bio-bibliographical articles on the 350 Expressionist authors represented complete the database.
