The electronic version of the Critical Studies series.

Critical Studies seeks to foster cross-disciplinarity and to participate in the ongoing reconfiguration of the Humanities and Social Sciences, while challenging received conceptual frameworks and perspectives, be they entrenched or “current”.
To this aim, since 1989, Critical Studies has published peer-reviewed titles, guest-edited, multi-authored collections of essays by scholars and intellectuals coming from various disciplinary and cultural backgrounds. It is now open also for monographs by a single author. The series welcomes volumes dealing with a vast range of topics, from the most enduring to the most contemporary, such as new synergetic approaches to future and emerging technologies, and Artificial Intelligence in societal relations, as well as re-visions of what it means to be human and digital.
Whether topics initially pertain to the fields of cultural studies, gender studies, media studies, the heritage of colonialism, or studies in post-humanism, to name just a few, special consideration is given to collections that:
1. produce innovative cross-disciplinary analyses by involving multiple theoretical contexts and/or cultural areas;
2. do not content themselves with applying methodologies or theories but submit their own propositions to critical scrutiny;
3. endeavour to open new questions and to posit new subjects for investigation on the basis of their methodological and theoretical innovation.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
