The nature of time has haunted humanity through the ages. Some conception of time has always entered into humanity's ideas about mortality and immortality, and permanence and change, so that concepts of time are of fundamental importance in the study of religion, philosophy, literature, history, and mythology. How humanity experiences time physiologically, psychologically and socially enters into the research of the behavioral sciences, and time as a factor of structure and change is an essential consideration in the biological and physical sciences. On one aspect or another, the study of time cuts across all disciplines. The International Society for the Study of Time has as its goal the interdisciplinary and comparative study of time: http://www.studyoftime.org

The New History of the Sermon series publishes current scholarship on the theory and practice of preaching. The first six volumes are edited collections focusing on the Christian sermon from the patristic era through the nineteenth century. Starting with Volume 7, the scope has expanded in three ways. First, the inclusion of faith traditions such as Judaism and Islam as well as New Religious Movements (NRMs). Second, the inclusion of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Third, the addition of other forms of scholarship such as monographs and critical editions of primary texts.

The Series Editors, Keith Francis (email) and Robert Ellison (email), welcome proposals from clergy, researchers in homiletics and related disciplines, as well as established and emerging scholars in communication studies, rhetoric, theology, history, sociology, and related fields.

Abolitionist Cosmopolitanism redefines the potential of American antislavery literature as a cultural and political imaginary by situating antislavery literature in specific transnational contexts and highlighting the role of women as producers, subjects, and audiences of antislavery literature. Pia Wiegmink draws attention to locales, authors, and webs of entanglement between texts, ideas, and people. Perceived through the lens of gender and transnationalism, American antislavery literature emerges as a body of writing that presents profoundly reconfigured literary imaginations of freedom and equality in the United States prior to the Civil War.
Series Editor:
This academic series is devoted to biography as an object and a method of research, with a view to answering the current demand for a theorization of biography as an emerging field, at a crossroads between several disciplines in the humanities. The main goal of the series is to publish leading publications in the field of biography studies.
Biography is considered here as distinct from autobiography. The Biography Studies series will not be a solely historical series, nor a series for literary theory, nor for Life Writing, but a series for biography studies: genuinely inter- and multidisciplinary, providing the subject of biography its own deserved space. It will not publish (biographical) source publications or biographies, but publications that reflect on and investigate biography/biographies as a research methodology and with regard to its role in public spheres.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the Publisher at Brill, Wendel Scholma.
