The electronic version of Avant-Garde Critical Studies, a series founded in 1987 for themed-anthologies and monographs on all aspects of avant-garde and avant-gardism in modern literature, theatre, music, visual and applied arts, architecture and design from the late nineteenth century to the present.

We publish high quality research on specific trends in single arts, countries and regions, as well as comparative and interdisciplinary studies in the interrelation between the different arts as well as between the arts, social and political contexts and cultural life in the broadest sense and all its diversity.
Ernst Bloch’s thought is located at the intersection of classical German philosophy and historical materialist theory. It has played a major role in materialist thought in the 20th century and continues to influence discussions, especially in continental philosophy, today. Yet, his reception has historically been limited in the Anglophone context by an absence of available translations. Bloch’s self-consciously expressionistic, creative use of language and his allusive, esoteric style go some of the way to explaining this absence. Nevertheless, Bloch is an extremely interesting thinker whose work is sought after by a wide range of scholars, theorists and general readers in the English-speaking world. Against the background of the current revival of speculative philosophy and a burgeoning contemporary interest in historical materialism, the absence of much of his work in English translation represents a significant gap in scholarship and in the publication market. The Bloch Bibliothek seeks to address this requirement by developing a series of critical editions of Bloch’s works translated into English.
(Formerly: GDR-Monitor)
Editor:
German Monitor (founded in 1979) is a series for themed edited volumes on literature, culture and politics in the German-speaking world since 1945. Our approach is inclusive: some volumes focus on single authors, political figures or genres; other volumes explore themes such as narratives of trauma, German left-wing terrorism, local/global narratives, and the roles that Germany, Austria, and Switzerland play in Europe today.

We welcome proposals for interdisciplinary volumes as well as those with a specifically literary, cultural or political focus. Many of our contributors are based in German Studies, others in disciplines such as Comparative Literature, Film Studies, Musicology, History, Museum Studies, and Political Science.

The book series has a system of double peer-reviewing. We publish volumes in German or English.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
Questions about your manuscript and proposals can also be directed to the Editor in Chief, Laura Bradley.

The 21st century has been haunted by increasing inequality, both within countries and between countries, across multiple dimensions. There is an increasing need for serious scholarship that questions mainstream perspectives and points towards a more equitable world. The New Scholarship in Political Economy series is designed to showcase the research of recent scholars working in any field of the social sciences whose research is informed by the work of Karl Marx. We seek interesting proposals for monographs, edited volumes, or recent PhDs that could be transformed into a monograph for publication. Authors should be in the early stages of their careers, with the expectation that a publication in this series will help promote their work while bringing attention to the latest scholarship within a critical political economy perspective.

NOTE TO CONTRIBUTORS
New Scholarship in Political Economy seeks contributions from early career scholars whose research is broadly located in the Marxist traditions in the social sciences. This includes heterodox economic analysis, critical social science research, and an array of inquiries ranging across cultural studies, gender, race and ethnicity research, and more. By early career, we mean scholars in the beginning of their academic or intellectual trajectory who can benefit from having their work appear in print. More established scholars should submit their proposals to the main series: Studies in Critical Social Sciences

For consideration in New Scholarship in Political Economy, authors should send the following: a) working title, b) a precise outline of the scope and focus of their work, and c) a tentative table of contents with a brief annotation describing each chapter. Please do not send full manuscripts until asked to do so. Once a contract has been issued, contributors will receive guidelines and specific instructions on submitting their work.

We are interested in publishing books based on newly minted or imminent PhDs, though we recognize that the process of turning one’s work into a publishable monograph will require a careful recasting and rewriting. A PhD is written to address the requirements of an institution and one’s committee, while a publishable monograph must appeal to a wider audience and does not require the kind of broad justification (literature, methods, etc. demonstrating professional competence) that must be included in a thesis: please bear this in mind when submitting your proposal. New PhDs should include a letter of introduction from an academic familiar with their work addressing the merits of the proposed project.

Authors are cordially invited to submit inquiries or proposals to the series editors David Fasenfest and Alfredo Saad-Filho. For more information about this subseries, please contact the publisher, Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to the associate editor, Katie Short.

New Scholarship in Political Economy is a subseries of the Studies in Critical Social Sciences book series.
Identity, Freedom, and Moral Imagination in the Baltics
Does it make sense to refer to the social and political existence of the Baltic countries as to being between civilizations of East and West, or as being on the boundary of two worlds? What are the most characteristic features of modern moral imagination? How does it manifest itself in the politics and cultures of the Baltic countries? These will be the main foci of the book series intended and launched as a critical examination of identity, politics, and culture in the Baltic countries. We are not going to confine this series to Soviet and post-Communist studies. By offering a wide scope of the social science and humanities disciplines, we would like to encourage intercultural dialogue and also to pursue interdisciplinary research in the field of Baltic studies.

As of Volume 44, the series is published by Verlag Ferdinand Schöninghclick here.

The series published an average of 2,5 volumes per year over the last 5 years.

Series Editor:
Modern capitalism began the 21st century seemingly victorious as the dominant social and economic organizing principle in the world. Rampant re- and de-regulation accompanied a wholesale attack on social, economic and political gains of the prior century under the guise of increasing competitiveness and the need to respond to the forces of globalization. The end of the cold war, the decline of the former Soviet Union, and the increasing foothold of capitalism in China all point to an unchallenged reorientation of the global political economy to reflect this ascendance of capitalist social relations. The peer-reviewed Studies in Critical Social Sciences book series, through the publication of original manuscripts and edited volumes, offers insights into the current reality by exploring the content and consequence of power relationships under capitalism, by considering the spaces of opposition and resistance to these changes, and by articulating capitalism with other systems of power and domination - for example race, gender, culture - that have been defining our new age.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editor David Fasenfest or the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Associate Editor Katie Short.

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 aim of the Brill Research Perspectives in Philosophy of Education (RPPES) series is to provide short monographs on central aspects of the field of philosophy of education, such as central thinkers (classical and recent), seminal works, movements and schools of thought, important ideas and concepts. The long-term aim is to establish an encyclopedic series of philosophy of education monographs, where each volume can be updated when needed, and main subjects can be expanded and specified to have more than one volume.

RPPES will offer a comprehensive reference resource for scholars and students working in the areas of, especially, philosophy of education, pedagogy – i.e. Pädagogik, pédagogique, pedagogía – and educational studies in general. Moreover, through its philosophical emphasis and depth, the series will be of interest to general philosophy, i.e. logics, theory of knowledge, metaphysics, ethics, political and social philosophy as well as poetics and aesthetics and the history of philosophy.

The series provides in-depth scholarly work on the main issues and figures in philosophy of education. This includes scholarly studies of classics such as Plato, Rousseau, Dewey et al., systematic analysis of concepts such as learning, childhood, virtue, citizenship education and imagination, as well as the major traditions and schools within philosophy of education.

The series makes it a priority to include not just established views and figures, but also up-and-coming scholars and marginal perspectives, thus bridging gaps between philosophy of education, philosophy and education, as well as Anglophone and non-Anglophone research communities. Each monograph is fully peer-reviewed and referenced and provides an overview of the most up-to-date research in the area dealt with. RPPES will be an invaluable resource for scholars wishing to draw on the latest research, as well as a dynamic resource for teaching and for students working in philosophy, education and related fields.
