About Modern Austrian Literature

The journal known since 1968 as Modern Austrian Literature first appeared in 1961 under the title Journal of the International Arthur Schnitzler Research Association. Since then, MAL has established itself as a premier source of scholarship on Austrian literature and culture extending beyond the borders of present-day Austria throughout the former Habsburg Austro-Hungarian Empire. European and Asian interest in MAL has grown over the decades, and the list of subscribers and the international diversity of contributors testify to the truly international status of the journal. MAL appears quarterly in print (in March, June, September, and December) and is also completely archived and available digitally.

Editors since the journal's inception:

  • George Schoolfield (1961-1962)
  • Eugene Grotegut (1962-1964)
  • Vincent LoCicero (1964-1971)
  • Donald Daviau (1971-1999)
  • Geoffrey C. Howes and Jacqueline Vansant (1999-2005)
  • Maria-Regina Kecht (2005-2008)
