The Historical-Critical Dictionary of Marxism (HCDM) is a comprehensive Marxist lexicon, which in the 9 German-language volumes concluded so far has involved over 800 scholars from around the globe. Conceived by philosopher Wolfgang Fritz Haug in 1983, the first volume of the ongoing lexicon project was published in 1994. This first English-language selection introduces readers to the HCDM’s wide range of terms: besides Marxist concepts, approached from a plural standpoint and stressing feminist, ecological, and internationalist perspectives, it boasts entries on the histories of social movements, theoretical schools, as well as cultural, political, philosophical, and aesthetic debates.

Colours make the map: they affect the map’s materiality, content, and handling. With a wide range of approaches, 14 case studies from various disciplines deal with the colouring of maps from different geographical regions and periods. Connected by their focus on the (hand)colouring of the examined maps, the authors demonstrate the potential of the study of colour to enhance our understanding of the material nature and production of maps and the historical, social, geographical and political context in which they were made.

Studien zur Äußerung von Emotionen durch metaphorischen Sprachgebrauch im Altgriechischen
Im Band werden Fälle metaphorischen Sprachgebrauchs im Altgriechischen aus den Quellbereichen (source domains) Temperatur, Gewicht und Geschmack gesammelt und analysiert, die zur Äußerung von Emotionen dienen. Der metaphorische Sprachgebrauch stellt in den letzten Jahren einen Schwerpunkt der Forschung verschiedener Disziplinen dar. Denn im Gegensatz zum früheren, traditionellen Verständnis von Metaphern als dekorativen und eher dichterischen Stilmitteln wurde in der neueren Forschung gezeigt, dass es sich bei Metaphern um einen Bestandteil alltäglicher Sprache handelt und dass sie kognitive Prozesse darstellen. Im Bereich der klassischen Philologie konzentrierte sich die bisherige Forschung auf literarische Texte. Von besonderem Interesse für die Untersuchung des metaphorischen Sprachgebrauchs im Altgriechischen ist aber auch die Heranziehung der dokumentarischen Texte, die aufgrund ihres besonderen Charakters und ihres engen Bezugs zur alltäglichen Lebenswelt der Schreibenden einen Einblick in die gesprochene Sprache vermitteln können.


Sociologists James Jasper and Jane Poulsen have argued that activists’ deployment of emotionally triggering ‘moral shocks’ can stimulate recruitment for movements, particularly for those which are less successful in recruiting through social networks. Others have suggested that, more than a recruitment tool, these moral shocks are useful for sustaining activist motivation. This study, however, explores the tendency of activists to disengage from moral shocks as a means of managing emotions such as compassion fatigue, burnout and psychological distress. Although many respondents see the utility in moral shocks as an outreach tool, they carefully consider their own exposure to protect their emotional well-being and protest sustainability. Results are based on an email-based qualitative interview with twenty-five newly recruited activists and established activists in the Western Nonhuman Animal rights movement.

In: Emotions: History, Culture, Society
This is a peer-reviewed book series that seeks to understand the process of European expansion, interchange and connectivity in a global context in the early modern and modern period. It will seek to understand this transformative process and period in cultural, economic, social, and ideological terms in Africa, the Indian Ocean, Central and East Asia and the Pacific Rim. This series will provide a forum for varied scholarly work - original monographs, article collections, editions of primary sources translations - on these exciting global mixtures and their impact on culture, politics and society in the period from the Portuguese navigators of the late fifteenth century until the end of ‘Company’ rule in British India in the mid-nineteenth century. It will move beyond the traditional isolated and nation bound historiographical emphases of this field which have isolated continents and nation-states and toward a broader intellectual terrain, encouraging whenever possible non-European perspectives. It will also encourage a wider disciplinary approach to early modern studies. Themes in this series will include the exchange of ideas and products, especially through the medium of trading companies; the exchange of religions and traditions; the transfer of technologies; the development of new forms of political, social and economic policy, as well as identity formation. It will seek out studies that employ diverse forms of analysis from all scholarly disciplines, including anthropology, archaeology, art history, history, (including the history of science), linguistics, literature, music, philosophy, and religious studies. In addition, it will include works translated from French, Portuguese and Spanish.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editor George Bryan Souza or the Publisher at Brill Alessandra Giliberto.

The European Association for American Studies Series
Series Editor:
European Perspectives on the United States: The European Association for American Studies Series is published under the auspices and with the editorial involvement of the European Association for American Studies. This peer-reviewed series provides a broad reflection of the state of American Studies in Europe. While the series prioritizes academic works that accentuate the importance of transnationality and interdisciplinarity in the study of the United States, it aims to properly recognize the diverse and relevant European achievements in the main disciplines of American Studies, to include but not limited to literary studies, cultural studies, film and media studies, history, and the social sciences. Benefiting from the varied professional alignments of European Americanists, European Perspectives on the United States will initiate new directions of dialogue in American Studies by opening the field to voices from across nations and continents.

European Perspectives on the United States has value for a wide and diverse range of academics and postdoctoral and postgraduate research students representing an array of disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. The series is intended to serve as an inclusive resource for researchers and readers with a multi-/interdisciplinary focus in American Studies. Given the central importance of American Studies in relation to key questions of global import relating to climate, migration, borders, Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, terrorism, and many other topics, the series serves as a much-needed forum to foster dialogue and cooperation within and between spheres of inquiry and activity.

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 will consider proposals for original monographs, edited collections, translations, and critical primary source editions.

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

Authors will find general proposal guidelines at the Brill Author Gateway.

Seit 2006 geben Mati Laur (Universität Tartu) und Karsten Brüggemann (Universität Tallinn) in enger Kooperation mit Kollegen der Universität Lettlands in Riga ein deutschsprachiges Jahrbuch heraus, das aktuelle Forschungen zur baltischen Geschichte veröffentlicht. Die FzbG sind eine vorrezensierte wissenschaftliche Zeitschrift der estnischen Akademischen Historischen Gesellschaft (Akadeemiline ajalooselts). Sie verstehen sich als ein akademisches Journal im Bereich der historischen Area studies, die es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht hat, den Austausch verschiedener nationaler Historiografien auf wissenschaftlicher Grundlage zu betreiben. Über den jeweils engen sprachlichen Rahmen der einzelnen Staaten Estland, Lettland und Litauen hinaus soll nicht zuletzt die innerbaltische fachliche Kommunikation gefördert werden. Die FzbG pflegen einen regionalen Schwerpunkt auf dem „historischen“ Baltikum (Estland, Livland und Kurland, d.h. ungefähr die heutigen Republiken Estland und Lettland), doch sind auch Beiträge zur litauischen Geschichte willkommen, da Litauen spätestens seit dem 20. Jahrhundert einen integralen Bestandteil „baltischer“ Geschichte bildet. Der zeitliche Rahmen der Artikel reicht aber von der Frühzeit bis zur post-sowjetischen Periode. Wir sind darüber hinaus insbesondere an Beiträgen interessiert, die sich mit den überregionalen Zusammenhängen in Nordosteuropa auseinandersetzen.
Die Sprachen dieser Zeitschrift sind Deutsch und Englisch mit Zusammenfassungen in der jeweils anderen Sprache. Dass die meisten Beiträge auf Deutsch publiziert werden, folgt einer historischen Tradition, da ein Großteil sowohl des Quellenbestands als auch der Historiografie zum historischen Baltikum deutschsprachig ist.
Die Herausgeber halten die Heranziehung von Fachleuten aus den Nachbarländern und anderen nicht-baltischen Staaten für eine ihrer wichtigsten Aufgaben, wofür auch das internationale Redaktionskollegium steht. Dabei ist vor allem an den umfangreichen Rezensionsteil gedacht, der über die wichtigsten neuesten Publikationen zur baltischen Geschichte informieren soll. Die mittlerweile erschienenen Bände demonstrieren, dass „baltische Geschichte“ heute einen wesentlichen regionalen Aspekt der Geschichte des Ostseeraums und damit ganz Europas (inkl. Russlands) darstellt. In den ersten zehn Jahren ihres Bestehens haben die FzbG Beiträge von Autorinnen und Autoren aus den drei baltischen Staaten, Deutschland, der Russländischen Föderation, Finnland, Schweden, Dänemark, Österreich, den Niederlanden, Italien, den USA und Kanada publizieren können. In diesem Sinne sieht sich die Redaktion in einem wachsenden internationalen Resonanzrahmen.

Mati Laur (Tartu University) and Karsten Brüggemann (Tallinn University) in close cooperation with colleagues from the University of Latvia in Riga have been editing a German-language yearbook presenting fresh studies on the history of the Baltic states. “Forschungen zur baltischen Geschichte” (Studies on Baltic History, FzbG) since 2006. The Studies on Baltic History (FzbG) is a peer-reviewed academic journal of the Estonian Historical Academic Society (Akadeemiline ajalooselts). They see themselves as an academic journal in the field of historical area studies that wants to encourage the scientifically-based exchange between the various national historiographies. Transgressing the small respective linguistic spheres of the nation states Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, the FzbG wants to contribute to the inner-Baltic professional discussion about the past. The regional focus of the journal lies in the historical Baltikum, the former Baltic provinces of the Russian Empire (Estland, Livland and Kurland, roughly the modern states of Estonia and Latvia), but contributions to Lithuanian history are also welcome because since the 20th century Lithuania forms an integral part of “Baltic” history. The time frame of articles published in FzbG, however, ranges from prehistory to the post-Soviet period. Moreover, we encourage in particular contributions that deal with the transregional interconnections in the broader geographical area of North-Eastern Europe.
This journal publishes texts in German and English with summaries, respectively, in English and German. The majority of articles are published in German, in which we follow the historical tradition since a major part of the archival sources and the older historiography about the Baltikum is in German.
The main task of the editors and the international editorial board is the involvement of experts from neighbouring and other non-Baltic countries. This is especially true for the extensive section of reviews informing about the latest publications on Baltic history. So far the published volumes of FzbG demonstrates quite successfully that the history of the Baltic states today is an important aspect of the past of the Baltic Sea area and thus the whole of Europe including Russia. During the first ten years of its existence, FzbG enjoyed the participation of authors from the three Baltic States, Germany, Russian Federation, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Netherlands, Italy, USA and Canada. In this understanding, the editors see themselves corresponding to a growing international resonance space.
