What distinguishes a review from a critique? What are the criteria for a good review? We all read reviews almost daily, in the newspaper, in magazines and academic journals. The working group “Reviewing” is concerned with the topic both systematically and historically: How has the review business changed historically? What influence have reviews had and still have in the humanities? How can review cartels be analyzed and described? What effects do digitalization and the emergence of new platforms on the Internet have on reviewing?
