The aims of Australian Playwrights are:

• To contribute to the interpretation, critical analysis, recognition, promotion, and wider understanding of Australian drama, theatre and performance.
• To publish scholarship on Australian drama, theatre and performance, including: critical studies of a particular playwright, director or company and their plays, productions and/or performances; thematic studies exploring the work of a group of Australian playwrights, theatre companies and/or performance makers; and scholarly books investigating a period, topic or approach in Australian drama, theatre or performance.
• To enliven, enrich, inform and illustrate the study of drama, theatre and performance, both within Australia and internationally, especially for scholars, artists and students.

Each book in the series offers an in-depth study aimed at furthering knowledge of Australian drama, theatre and performance within the broader formation of Australian culture by drawing on a range of primary and secondary sources concerned with playwriting, performance-making, theatre production and/or critical reception.

Abenteuer sind Bahnungen im Gestrüpp der Kontingenz. Sie verlangen nach einer Reflexion über Zufall und Schicksal, über Wagnis, Risiko und Ereignishorizonte des Erzählens, über Sinnansprüche und Techniken der Sinnbildung. „Wir wünschen wahrlich eine philosophische Geschichte des Abentheuers!“ schrieb Herder im Jahr 1774. Die Schriftenreihe der Münchner Forschungsgruppe Philologie des Abenteuers will dem Herderschen Arbeitsauftrag entsprechen, indem sie diesen unterschätzten Grundbegriff des Erzählens in seiner narratologischen, psychologischen und kulturgeschichtlichen Dimension entfaltet. Das Erzähl-, Wahrnehmungs- und Erfahrungsschema namens Abenteuer hat sich, allen kritischen Einsprüchen zum Trotz, als extrem anpassungsfähig erwiesen, immer neue Renaissancen erlebt und immer weitere Bereiche der Kultur durchdrungen. In solchen Übertragungen wird der ursprünglich narrative Charakter des Abenteuers häufig nicht mehr mitgedacht. Eben diesen Charakter stellt die Reihe Philologie des Abenteuers in den Mittelpunkt. Ihr historischer Radius reicht von antiken Grundlagentexten über mittelalterliche und frühneuzeitliche Erzählformen bis in die Moderne, in der das Abenteuer scheinbar aus der seriösen Literatur verdrängt wird, sich in Wirklichkeit aber zäh im literarischen Feld behauptet – und zwar keineswegs nur an dessen Rändern. In dieser historischen Tiefenperspektive erweist sich der Begriff Abenteuer als ein wandlungsfähiger, gleichwohl aber elementarer Nukleus des Erzählens – elementar sowohl im narrativen als auch im psychologischen Sinn.
Systematic and Historical Perspectives on Intermedial, Transmedial, and Multimodal Theory and Practice
The multidisciplinary series Studies in Intermediality comprises monographs and essay collections that explore dynamic relations between media, that is, complex processes of medial exchange, transformation, interaction, or interplay. The series highlights the fact that the field of Intermediality Studies has become increasingly variegated and that it advances overlapping, yet distinct theories of intermediality, transmediality, multimodality, and adaptation. These theories acknowledge an extensive range of relationships established among various media and investigate how more general conceptualizations of mediality emerge from ever-diversifying mediascapes, which incorporate media that have persisted for centuries as well as new formats (digital or otherwise) that continue to evolve.

The peer-reviewed volumes of Studies in Intermediality, which have been appearing since 2006, critically assess the internationally far-reaching and innovative scope of Intermediality Studies and related fields.

Critical posthumanism can be understood as the discourse that deconstructively inhabits humanism and critiques its anthropocentrism. It works both genealogically – in historicising the contemporary figure of the posthuman – and speculatively – in imagining, analysing and evaluating scenarios of humanity’s perceived exceptionalism, challenges, or ends. It thus critically engages with unsettling anticipations of the future, provides timely critiques of the present and produces rewritings and alternative narratives with a postanthropocentric or nonhuman dimension. Critical posthumanism’s concerns typically embrace the impacts of bio- and digital technology; ecological crises; the development of artificial intelligence; more-than-human ethics; politics and justice and their interdisciplinary debate within the new or posthumanities.

Critical Posthumanisms is a series addressing all the above. It publishes cutting-edge monographs and edited collections focusing on the rise of posthumanism and its forms, perspectives and directions. It makes available studies by scholars whose perspectives on the posthuman, nonhuman or more-than-human vary in important and interesting ways, and should serve as a crucial point of reference for anybody working within the field.

Books within the series provide:
- inter- or multidisciplinary takes on posthumanism, the posthuman, nonhuman or more-than-human, particularly those allowing the new humanities or posthumanities to critically engage with areas like artificial intelligence, biotechnology, virtual reality, climate change, geo-engineering, etc.;
- analyses of the histories, genealogies, idioms, and canons of different posthumanisms and discussions of the main sources, thinkers and trends of posthumanism;
- alternative formulations of posthumanism, which problematise the centrality of technology;
- philosophical and political critiques of the prosthesisation, enhancement, transformation or transcendence of the human or nonhuman;
- investigations into the role and future of fictional and speculative discourses in literature, film, art, performance, media and science involving scenarios of posthumanisation (or becoming-other-than-human).

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.

Manuscripts for this series should eventually follow MHRA style, and preferably use UK spelling.
Avant-Garde Translation is a playful ensemble that celebrates creativity in all things translation by taking you on a journey to the cutting edge of translation practice and theory. Through a refreshing mix of essay forms, from scholarly study to practical translation toolkits, Avant-Garde Translation explores territories as diverse as children’s picturebooks, multilingual poems, and visual artworks, and proposes various translation strategies such as audio-visual collages, ninja invisibility, and collaboration with invented translators. The spirited and provocative contributions intervene in the field of translation studies to shake up the status quo: by highlighting the critical and creative connections between thought and practice, the book shows how literary translation can be an exploratory playground for radical transformation.

The cultural change denominated as “the new normal” goes far beyond the adaptation to habits like physical distancing, limited person-to-person contact, teleworking, and self-isolation established with the COVID-19 pandemic. A series of significant transformations in human behavior spreads today in societies all around the world: physical intimacy decreases while virtual reality expands and alterity declines while artificial intelligence emerges, leading to structural reconfigurations of sex, relationships, gender awareness, and subjectivity.
