This series combines persisting needs with emerging emphases in Armenian studies. It encourages studies that place Armenian culture in its multifaceted international context, on the Armenian plateau as well as in its historic and current Diaspora.
Philological studies containing important critically edited texts, translations and commentaries remain in need as before. Thousands of Armenian manuscripts await disclosure in order to become part of scholarly and popular discourse and take their place in a field that invites an interdisciplinary and pluralistic approach like few others.
Armenian literature from the seventeenth century up to the present is understudied and will amply repay scholarly engagement.
In recent decades, the study of Armenian material culture, mythology and folklore has made great strides, next to art and architecture.The series welcomes contributions in these extensive fields.
Armenian Texts and Studies deals with Armenian prehistory up to the modern and contemporary period and promotes research that applies methods current in sociology, anthropology and other social sciences next to those used in literary, linguistic and historical studies, including the study of Armenian cinema and modern media.
The volume Armenian Philology in the Modern Era: From Manuscript to Digital Text, published in 2014, was the first of a series sponsored by the International Association for Armenian Studies (Association Internationale des Études Arméniennes – AIEA), in the framework of the “Armenian Studies 2000” project. Launched at the turn of the 20th century, this AIEA project has two chief aims: 1) to present an in-depth state of the art in the main fields of Armenology; and 2) to indicate new perspectives and desiderata for further research.
The “Armenian Studies 2000” project is organized so as to produce seven volumes dedicated to the major fields of Armenian Studies, i.e. Philology, Linguistics, Literature, History (both Ancient and Medieval Eras as well as Modern and Contemporary Eras), Religious and Intellectual history, Art and Architecture.
With this scientific and editorial enterprise, the AIEA committee wishes to foster new methodological approaches and to promote new interest for Armenian Studies. It is our hope that these volumes will pave the way for new directions and new fields of research. As scholarly reference works, these volumes are addressed not only to the Armenological readership, but also to scholars and students from broader areas of the Oriental Studies.
‘The Writings of’ series brings together the principal writings of leading scholars in the field of East Asian and Inner Asian Studies, thematically grouped when relevant. Each volume is enhanced by an in-depth introduction by the author which combines memoir and academic context to illuminate the subject-matter and provide valuable commentary over the time-line of the contributions published. The title of each volume reflects the main focus of the scholar’s work.

The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.

Though its consequences are felt everywhere, once again in its long history Central or Inner Asia, given its many religious, economical, and historical backgrounds and identities, will play an important role in the formation of a new balance in Asia. It is exactly the history, literature, religion, arts, economy and politics of these Inner Asian cultures and societies that Brill's Inner Asian Library series will be dedicated to.
