Global Populisms aims to enhance and expand the rapidly emerging robust, transdisciplinary, and global research on populism. Prior research on populism is now being re-examined, stretched, and challenged as a new wave of populism sweeps the globe. How are current and historical manifestations of populism worldwide to be understood and analyzed? Global Populisms invites monographs and edited volumes that move the field in new directions, particularly by engaging other disciplines and identifying core cross-cutting themes. In short, the main purpose and objective of this series is to support subject-specific inquiries into the dynamics and effects of global populism and its varying impacts across, between, and within societies. Global Populisms is designed as a highly accessible book series aimed at introducing a large readership to the contemporary and historical field of “populism studies.”

Manuscripts should be at least 80,000 words in length (including footnotes and bibliography). Manuscripts may also include illustrations and other visual material. The editors welcome proposals for monographs written for academics and researchers in the field that are based on original scholarly research that makes a notable contribution to the subject. The series editors will also consider proposals for edited volumes that demonstrate strong thematic coherence and continuity among the contributions.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Jason Prevost. Please direct all other correspondence to Assistant Editor Debbie de Wit.

Authors will find general proposal guidelines at the Brill Author Gateway.
The Handbook of Sufi Studies (HSUF) series serves as the principal reference tool for the field of Sufi studies and an essential forum for theoretically and methodologically sophisticated discussions of the major themes and research methods related to this field.

The goal of HSUF is not just to describe and summarize the findings of the previous scholarship on Sufism but also to engage critically it and to offer new ways to approach it. Special attention is paid to the applicability to Sufi studies of methodological tools developed by sociology, cultural anthropology, subaltern and gender studies, religious studies, literary theory and discourse analysis.

Each volume of the series consists of a general introduction by the editor(s) followed by several general analytic essays on the topics at hand. Each analytical essay, in its turn, introduces several sub-chapters focusing on a particular issue within the overall thematic scope of the chapter. Written by major experts on Sufism, the Handbook of Sufi Studies (HSUF) series is meant to be a standard reference for both specialists in Islamic and religious studies and non-specialists interested in a balanced and academically rigorous discussion of Sufism.
The Language of Classical Literature is a peer-reviewed series of studies on Greek and Latin language and literature that are informed by modern literary or linguistic theory (e.g. discourse linguistics, narratology, intertextuality, metapoetics). The series is open to monographs, edited volumes, and conference proceedings (provided they have a clear thematic coherence).
