Specialists of adolescence and youth tend to consider these life stages as valuable barometers of social change. Indeed, new trends in society can be observed through the prism of young people who today find themselves under the spotlight as never before. At the same time, all over the planet, tremendous changes in everyday life can be witnessed currently. The main reason for a book series focused on adolescence and youth from an international perspective is due to the lack of knowledge and understanding of the emergence of transnational shared practices, values, norms, behaviors, cultures and patterns among young people all over the globe.

The aim of this book series is to be a forum for discussion and exchanges, a space for intellectual creativity on all questions relating to youth in a globalizing world. It also provides a valuable and much-needed crucible for comparative studies on youth from an international perspective. Its spirit is to be open to new suggestions coming from research in the social sciences. From an epistemological stance, what kind of concepts do sociologists of youth need in order to understand changes? Are classical sociological concepts on youth still useful and relevant? What kind of perspectives could be more suitable?

Because this book series is situated within a mainstream research framework, we welcome original leading works written in a manner that is accessible to a wider audience.

National Cultivation of Culture is a peer-reviewed book series that addresses cultural nationalism (and regionalism), and the canonization of cultural traditions, in nineteenth-century Europe.
The "cultivation of culture" ranges from the study of language to language politics; from the edition of ancient documents to the writing of national histories and historical novels; from the proclamation of national-literary programmes to the commemoration of great authors; from folklore studies to folk revivals and from archeology to the establishment of national museums.
Special emphasis is placed on the institutional and political settings for these cultural activities (the professionalization of learning, the emergence of the large-scale reading public, the state centralization of libraries, archives and universities), and on the comparative and dynamic aspects of these processes: exchanges and transfers between generations, between media and between cultural fields, as well as between countries and regions.
This dimension in the development of the European nation-state with its assertion of a cultural heritage and individuality offers a rich theme in the interstice between intellectual, cultural and political history.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editor Joep Leerssen or the publisher at BRILL, Wendel Scholma.

In modern research, breaking boundaries between the different social sciences is becoming more and more popular. Discussions in which different disciplines are being invited to shed their light on such issues as migration, violence, urbanisation, trust and social capital are common in current academic discourse. Brill’s International Comparative Social Studies focuses on presenting the results of comparative research by anthropologists, sociologists, political scientists and other social scientists.

Thamyris seeks to initiate alternative forms of criticism by analysing the ways in which cultural and theoretical discourses intervene in the contemporary world. This criticism should pursue a re-politicizing and remobilizing of theoretical perspectives and cultural practices, preferably through case studies. Thamyris hopes to contribute to the productive interaction between art, activism, and theory. We understand cultural practices to include those of literary, visual, digital, and performance arts, but also social practices related to gender, sexuality, and ethnicity. In short, Thamyris aims at exploring the ways in which varying cultural practices, separately or in interaction, can be effective as agents of social and cultural change.

The International Institute of Sociology (IIS) is a scholarly forum for furthering professional interests through the exchange of ideas and open discussion without any ideological constraints. The main activity of the IIS is the organization of international meetings of limited scope, designed as intellectual exchanges focusing on plenary sessions as well as on working sessions proposed and organized by members at large. The Institute was established in 1893, and as such is the oldest continuous sociological association in existence.

The Annals of the International Institute of Sociology started in 1895, under the editorship of René Worms, Secretary General of the IIS. Volumes are supposed to come out once every year and they contain the proceedings of the previous congress. Publication is restricted to papers presented in the Plenary Sessions and in those Working Sessions which are either strictly connected with the congress theme or of particular interest to the social setting of the congress.

The Annals cover a multidisciplinary approach to social analysis, in concurrence with the nature of the membership of IIS that is not restricted to sociologists but also includes historians, economists, demographers, anthropologists, and social psychologists.

The European Values Studies book series is based on the results of a large-scale, cross-national, and longitudinal survey research program, founded in the late 1970s by a foundation which is now called the European Values Study. This group investigates basic social, cultural, political, moral, and religious values held by the populations of the European countries. The first study was carried out in 1981, followed by repeat surveys in 1990, 1999, and 2008, in an increasing number of countries. Today, all European countries are involved in the European Values Study. The publications in this series include interpretations and explanations of the quantitative survey data. These are presented in the form of monographs and edited volumes. The Series also publishes sourcebooks.

For more information on the European Values Study see: www.europeanvaluesstudy.eu

The series has published one volume over the last 5 years.
