The Division has published reports since the beginning of the 1990s. The first years the reports were annual, basic information on changes in staff, courses offered, seminars held, and activities by individual members of the Division. Since 2015 the reports are biennial and open up to all the voices at the Divison, both with deep analyzis of publishing and funding, with basic information reported on projects, staff etc and with personal reflections from the people who worked with the Divison during the two years represented.

"Reporting on a two-year time period is hard when one year so utterly clogs our memories. In retrospect, 2019 was just another busy and successful year for our Division, while 2020 was exceptional. The year 2020 was extremely noisy and incredibly still. Covid colonized not only our lives, it also unsettled the Division’s buoyant optimism and familiar work modes. Now, in early 2021, we still have not fully adjusted to the social distance that comes with physical distancing." Sabine Höhler, about the Division.
