Political and Public Theologies: Comparisons – Coalitions – Critiques seeks to provide a forum for critical and constructive engagements with the significance of theologies for the public square. Connecting the increasingly interdisciplinary fields of political and public theology, the series is interested in the impact that theologies have on public issues and the impact that public issues have on theologies, both theoretically and practically. PPT invites publications from established and emerging scholars that engage with the significance of theologies for the public square from (1) comparative angles that facilitate inter-religious studies, (2) coalitional angles that foster inter-religious solidarities, and (3) critical angles that re-formulate theology as a resource for contemporary controversies. PPT is published in cooperation with the Centre for Theology and Public Issues (CTPI), University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.
Die Schriftenreihe der Gedenkstätte Hadamar thematisiert die Vielfalt an Themen, Perspektiven und Fragestellungen, die sich aus der wissenschaftlichen, pädagogischen und kuratorischen Auseinandersetzung mit den nationalsozialistischen „Euthanasie“-Verbrechen ergeben. Hierzu gehören insbesondere die Vorgeschichte und die Voraussetzungen der Krankenmorde wie deren langfristige Folgewirkungen sowohl im nationalen wie auch im internationalen Kontext. Die Buchreihe leistet damit einen Beitrag zur Medizingeschichte, zur Geschichte des Nationalsozialismus und zur Geschichte und Praxis unterschiedlicher Ausdrucksformen der Auseinandersetzung mit dem Nationalsozialismus nach 1945.
The publication series of the Hadamar Memorial addresses the variety of perspectives and questions arising from the scholarly examination of the National Socialist „euthanasia“ crimes.This includes in particular the prehistory and the preconditions of the murders of the sick as well as their long-term consequences not only in a national but also in an international context. The book series thus contributes to the history of medicine, to the history of National Socialism, and to the history and practice of coming to terms with National Socialism after 1945.
Mit dieser Reihe wird ein Beitrag zur Entwicklung einer europäischen Geschichtsschreibung geleistet, denn die Revolutions- und Napoleonischen Kriege zwischen 1792 und 1815 prägten die europäische Geschichte so nachhaltig wie kein anderer bewaffneter Konflikt zwischen Dreißigjährigem Krieg und 1. Weltkrieg. Aufgrund ihrer weitreichenden Folgen für Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Politik spielten sie nicht nur in der zeitgenössischen Erfahrung, sondern auch im kollektiven Gedächtnis eine zentrale Rolle.
Die in der Reihe erscheinenden Studien untersuchen, wie die Kriegsjahre 1792 - 1815 in den beteiligten Nationen und Regionen erfahren und erinnert wurden, welche Faktoren das kommunikative Gedächtnis formten und was davon in das kulturelle Gedächtnis aufgenommen wurde.

The book series
Mediterranean Reconfigurations is devoted to the analyses of historical change in the Mediterranean over a long period (15th - 19th centuries), challenging totalizing narratives that “Westernize” Mediterranean history as having led naturally to European domination in the 19th and 20th centuries. In reality, the encounters of Muslim, Jewish, Armenian and Protestant merchants and sailors with legal customs and judicial practices different from their own gave rise to legal and cultural creativity throughout the Mediterranean. Through the prism of commercial litigation, the series thus offers a more accurate and deeper understanding of the practices of intercultural trade, in a context profoundly shaped by legal pluralism and multiple and overlapping spaces of jurisdiction. Comparative case studies offer empirically-based indicators for both regional and more general processes, here called "Mediterranean reconfigurations", e.g. the changing interplay and positioning of individual and institutional actors on different levels in a variety of commercial and legal contexts.
This peer-reviewed book series publishes research monographs and edited collections on modern and contemporary history. The remit of the series is broad in chronological (nineteenth to twenty-first centuries) and geographic (global coverage) terms to promote a multi-dimensional conversation on the diverse expressions of the ‘modern condition’; and on how particular ‘modern’ forces and processes shaped the world in micro- and macro-scales. The series fosters critical reflection on the study of modern concepts and ideologies; of political, cultural, and social change; of mobilities and exchanges within and across conventional borders; and of conflicts between competing actors, groups or ideas.
The series welcomes submissions from scholars of political, cultural, social, and intellectual history, as well as of scholars whose work on the modern world lies at the fruitful intersection of history, political science, cultural studies, and international relations. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary submissions that traverse traditional historical, geographical, or methodological boundaries; engage with transnational and comparative perspectives; promote long-term analysis of drivers and processes of historical change; and develop new perspectives on the fascinating plurality of modern and contemporary phenomena. We are committed to giving space to new scholarship that questions conventional assumptions about, and understandings of, the modern/contemporary world; or brings in focus previously under-studied topics and areas.

This innovative book series explores the gendered nature of the Pacific World by focusing on three phenomena: Diaspora, Empire, and Race. It features how people have dispersed across the Pacific for trade, labor, migration, cultural exchange, and military engagement. These migrations rarely occur in gendered balanced ways, resulting in “bachelor” societies in the receiving country and “stranded” women in the sending country. At other times, female migrants have been in the forefront of migration. The Pacific has also been the site of multiple empires – Asian, European, and American. These colonial powers were invested in managing the gender and sexual relations among and between “natives” and “colonizers.” Finally, the phenomenon of migration and political expansion coincided with racializing processes that established social hierarchies based on naturalized assumptions of biological difference. Here again, gender was essential to these efforts.
Gendering the Trans-Pacific World seeks scholarship that offers original approaches to understanding these complex power relations. It welcomes social and cultural history and biography as well as interdisciplinary works that examine art, photography, film, and literature.
Manuscripts should be at least 90,000 words in length (including footnotes and bibliography). Manuscripts may also include illustrations and other visual material. The editors will consider proposals for original monographs, edited collections, translations, and critical primary source editions.

How have the historical experiences and legacies of the communist revolution before 1949 and socialism under Mao influenced the course of reform and development in China since the 1980s? And how do Chinese intellectuals reexamine the aspects and trajectories of socialism and reform in China and reinterpret the links and discontinuities between them? The
Rethinking Socialism and Reform in China series presents the most innovative studies in English translation by leading Chinese scholars, which have been originally published by
Open Times (
Kaifang shidai), one of the most influential journals in China that appeals to both academics and the general public. The planned volumes of the series cover a variety of themes ranging from the communist revolution, social control and mobilization, and everyday power relations in Maoist China, to economic change, governance and resistance, gender, ethnicity, and cultural issues in recent decades.
The overall aim of this book series is to offer new perspectives on the East-West conflict by building on recent and current historiographical developments in Cold War history. The series moves beyond traditional narratives by investigating the impact of both medium and lesser powers on the evolution of the Cold War. In addition to state actors, potential authors are also encouraged to focus on international organisations and non-state actors, such as national liberation movements, non-governmental organisations, and civil society groups. The geographical scope of the series is global and extends to all continents to cover also hitherto neglected (sub-)regions, notably in the so-called Third World. Methodologically, submissions should preferably be based on multi-archival historical research, and can draw on other related disciplines, such as (but not limited to) international relations and anthropology. While the editors privilege single-authored research monographs, they also welcome proposals for multi-authored volumes.
