Experimental Practices seeks to develop science, art, and literature as truly experimental practices, and explores their interaction towards new forms of knowledge production.
The need to forge alliances between the humanities, arts, and sciences has increased in times of environmental, political, and technological crisis and transformation. Disciplinary hybrids, such as the environmental or medical humanities, and transdisciplinary endeavors in the fields of cultural studies, artistic research, and science and technology studies signal the urgency of a turn towards ecological and more-than-human approaches. These emergent practices and perspectives reshape modes of knowing and interacting in resonance with a broad array of worldly concerns, including decolonization, digitalization, and the reinvention of the social. In this context, Experimental Practices is a platform for creative forms of research at the intersections of the humanities, sciences, arts, and activism on issues that shape contemporary cultures and their future.
Taking “experimentation” as the practice, topic, and aim of the series, the editors welcome monographs or collected volumes on a specific concept or theme that contribute and enact a practice-based and theory-driven poetics of knowledge.
The series is committed to continue a fruitful collaboration with the international SLSA (Society for the Study of Literature, Science, and the Arts), including its independent European branch SLSAeu.
Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
