Central Europe is the interdisciplinary journal of the Centre for the Study of Central Europe. It was founded in its present form in 2003 at the UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies and is published twice yearly by Maney Publishing. It grew out of The Masaryk Journal, founded at SSEES in 1997 by Katya A. M. Kocourek.
Central Europe publishes original research articles on the history, languages, literature, political culture, music, arts and society of those lands once part of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from the Middle Ages to the present, as well as on the relations between Germany and those lands. It also publishes discussion papers, marginalia, book, archive, exhibition, music and film reviews. Central Europe has been established as a refereed journal to foster the worldwide study of the area and to provide a forum for the academic discussion of Central European life and institutions. From time to time an issue will be devoted to a particular theme, based on a selection of papers presented at an international conference or seminar series.
