*TRANSIT 10.1*

Dear Readers,

We are pleased to announce the publication of the first installment of texts for our 2015–2016 Tenth Anniversary Volume. Articles in this publication center around two themes of interest to contemporary German Studies: digital humanities research and the concept of the barrier. These research prompts for TRANSIT emerged out of conferences and panel style presentations. Our special topic subsection on the digital humanities contains four articles which arose out of continuing discussions inspired by Deniz Göktürk’s 2014 Chicago MLA Panel on “Artistic and Scholarly Practice in the Digital Age.” Earlier versions of the projects assembled here were presented at the 2014 Kansas City GSA Panel on “Digital Humanities and German Studies” organized by Matthew Handelman and David D. Kim. Our subsection on the concept of barriers presents five articles. Information for this topic grew out of UC Berkeley’s 2015 Interdisciplinary German Studies Conference “Barriers,” organized by four graduate students from the UC Berkeley Department of German.

Volume 10.1 also includes a translation of Osman Engin’s 1994 short story “Amigo Armado,” originally published in his collection Dütschlünd, Dütschlünd übür üllüs

This publication is the first of a two-part Tenth Anniversary Volume to be continued in Spring of 2016 with further articles responding to our CFPs on barriers and the digital humanities, as well as a guest-edited special feature by Berkeley alumni: “The Future of the Past.”

I would like to thank the contributors to this issue for their patience and diligence throughout the process of revision and the editors for their meticulous edits and insightful comments.

We would like to remind you that we continue to invite rolling submissions, including translations, articles, and multimedia projects, and we always welcome suggestions for collaborations with guest editors.

We hope you enjoy the first installment of texts for our 2015-2016 volume, and we look forward to possibilities for future collaboration and exchange.
