An international consortium of research institutes, universities and non-academic partners in six European countries has been awarded with a research grant from the Department for Research and Innovation of the European Commission in June 2018. Mediating Islam Digital Age (MIDA) is coordinated by the ‘Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique’ (CNRS) in Paris. The consortium includes twelve beneficiaries and thirteen partner organisations, Brill being one of them.
Public Anthropologist is the title of a new international, peer-reviewed journal, forthcoming with academic publisher Brill, examining the issues of our time in a way that both encourages and scrutinizes a diverse range of shifts outwards from the purely academic realm towards wider publics and counter-publics engaged in cultural and political exchanges and collective collaborations for change.
Brill and the Society for the History of Emotions have agreed that the journal Emotions: History, Culture, Society (EHCS) will from now on be published with Brill. Edited by Katie Barclay (Adelaide) and Andrew Lynch (Western Australia), EHCS is dedicated to understanding the emotions as culturally and temporally situated phenomena, and to exploring the role of emotion in shaping human experience and action by individuals, groups, societies and cultures.
