Scope and Aims
Launched in 2018, the European Criminal Justice Series provides a forum for high-quality scholarship on the European dimensions of crime, criminal law, criminal policy, and punishment. Publications in the series provide insight into how crime, criminal law and criminal justice is developing within the European Union and on the European continent, both from a legal and criminological perspectives. The series particularly welcomes monographs but is also open to edited volumes.

Authors who are interested to publish in the European Criminal Justice Series, are invited to submit a proposal for consideration by the editorial board. For questions regarding the European Criminal Justice Series, or to submit a proposal, please contact the Editorial Board. The Editorial Board consists of the board members of the European Journal of Crime, Criminal Law and Criminal Justice, and two additional members. Each manuscript will be reviewed by the two editors-in-chief and by either one or two board members – depending on the topic and the required expertise.
Brill’s Studies in Art & Materiality is a peer-reviewed book series dedicated to innovative scholarship about the relation between art, materials, and making.

Artists possess knowledge about materials, their affordances and interactions, and skillfully transform materials into art objects. The resulting specific materiality of a work of art is not only an index of its making, but is also fundamentally connected to meaning, aesthetic perception, mimetic potential, economic value, cultural and social impact, as well as its endurance and preservation. Understanding these connections enhances the field of art history and opens new avenues of investigation, ranging from the focused situated study of individual materials and art objects to comparative inquiries that cross traditional boundaries between genre, time, and space. The development of salient theoretical and methodological frameworks to study the materiality of art connects art history and its sub-disciplines (technical art history, museum studies) to anthropology, history of science, archaeology, material culture studies, as well as the cognitive sciences.

The series accommodates scholarly monographs, collections of essays, conference proceedings, and reference works that engage with the rich meanings of art works’ materiality.

The series is not restricted to a particular chronological period or geographical region, thereby allowing for a broad range of topics. In addition, the series has an interdisciplinary component, while keeping a distinct profile. As such, the series promises rich, innovative content for a wide academic readership.

The way people act and work – and are enhanced or replaced by technology – in employment and practice settings in the future, will inevitably evolve incrementally or radically. This series considers probable, possible and preferable practice futures and employability, along with accompanying educational influences and support. Wisdom is a key dimension of our discussions of practice and education. The books in this series examine directions that are currently underway, future visioned and at the edge of imagination in transforming practices. The authors reflect on how these transformations are being or could be influenced by many factors including changes in society, nations and global connections, in the physical environment, workplaces (physical and virtual) and in the socio-economic-political contexts of the world and its nations. The authors in this series bring a rich range of practical and academic knowledge and experience to examine these issues. Through the conversations in these books readers can enter into these debates from multiple perspectives – work, organisations, education, professional practice, employability, society, globalisation, humanity, spirituality and the environment.

The series will be of interest to anybody interested in questions of cosmopolitan and vernacular in the Sinographic Cosmopolis—specifically, with respect to questions of language, writing and literary culture, embracing both beginnings (the origins of and early sources for writing in the sinographic sphere) and endings (the disintegration of the Sinographic Cosmopolis in places like Korea, Japan and Vietnam, and the advent of linguistic modernity throughout all of the old Sinitic sphere. In addition, the series will feature comparative research on interactions and synergies in language, writing and literary culture in the Sinographic Cosmopolis over nearly two millennia, as well as studies of the 'sinographic hangover' in modern East Asia-critical and comparative assessments of the social and cultural history of language and writing and linguistic thought in modern and premodern East Asia.
Critical storytellers provoke readers to acknowledge and question different perspectives. Critical storytelling questions unquestioned norms and assumptions. It exposes oppression in its various forms, such as violence, sexism, racism, bullying, exploitation, marginalization, dehumanization, and cultural imperialism. These passionate narrators have the guts to think, act, and question, vulnerably. Storytelling, when it's critical, is inclusive. It doubts common sense. It questions the status quo. It tears down regimes of domination. It envisions possibilities for change. Critical storytellers rely on various media and methods. Their stories are critical of metanarratives that are exclusionary and divisive. Critical storytellers voice silences and offer new narratives in their creative work. The Critical Storytelling book series will include diverse storytelling methods, theoretical approaches, and narrative frameworks. We invite collaborative books, edited, and authored, as well as individually written projects. Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by e-mail to Assistant Editor Evelien van der Veer.

Due to the ecclesiastical and social changes in recent years, church and religious law face major challenges and modifications. The editors have therefore developed a new encyclopedia for church and religious law. It is supposed to provide users with well-founded orientation and information on the latest state of research on the historically evolved, valid own law of the churches and religious communities and their legal relations to the state.

The Lexikon für Kirchen- und Religionsrecht (LKRR) is published in four volumes, print and online in German, and offers reliable and concise information in over 2,600 lemmas or keywords on the fundamental questions of the internal law of churches and religious communities and of religious law.

In addition to questions of state law and ecclesiastical law of the Catholic and Protestant Churches, central contents of the ecclesiastical law of the Orthodox Churches as well as the law of Judaism and Islam are dealt with. The encyclopedia is committed to an interreligious and ecumenical perspective and offers the user the opportunity to compare the different areas of law. The collaboration of reputable scholars of state law, religious law and Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Jewish and Islamic law guarantees well-founded and qualified information. The encyclopedia is a reliable and essential source of information for both theologians and lawyers in their academic studies, in science, in civil and ecclesiastical administration, as well as in pastoral counselling and professional practice.

This reference work is also available as an online publication.
