The Cultural History of the Avant-Garde in the Nordic Countries Since 1975 is the final volume of the four-volume series of cultural histories of the avant-garde movements in the Nordic countries. This volume carries the avant-garde discussion forward to present-day avant-gardes, challenged by the globalisation of the entertainment industries and new interactive media such as the internet. The avant-garde can now be considered a tradition that has been made more widely available through the opening of archives, electronic documentation and new research, which has spurred both re-enactments, revisions and continuations of historical avant-garde practices, while new cultural contexts, political, technological and ecological conditions have called for new strategies.
This series offers art-historical and interdisciplinary approaches to how art was conceived, produced, and received across Europe, from the early medieval to the early modern. It pays particular attention to the social, cultural, religious, and political history of the period as seen through contemporary visual and material culture.

The series is interested in all areas of European artistic life in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Work in the series explores art forms such as painting, sculpture, architecture, textiles, glass, metalwork, ceramics, ephemera, spatial strategies, and more. Themes of study may include emotions, the senses, devotional practices, the environment, animals, bodies, otherness, religious and social changes, literacy (written and visual), protest, and issues of class, race, and gender, to name only a few. Interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and comparative work is also warmly welcomed. The series publishes monographs, edited thematic collections, and reference works.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editors, Professor Sarah Blick and Professor Laura D. Gelfand or the Publisher at Brill, Dr Kate Hammond.

Arts, Creativities, and Learning Environments in Global Perspectives aims at investigating the encounters that can occur between the arts and creativities in various learning environments and cultural contexts. The series intends to explore the multiplicity of these approaches by presenting perspectives from diverse learning environments, not solely formal institutions like schools, universities, academies, and colleges, but also non-formal ones (cultural institutions, libraries, museums, theatres, orchestras, archives, organisations, and work-places) or informal ones (play and games, community projects, amateur art, and clubs). This means that a pluralistic view on the artS – indeed, plural – is being embraced by including artistic expressions from all genres and artistic encounters at all levels, including the arts-based, artist-led, arts-inspired, arts-integrated. We encourage contributions from all over the world, in order to challenge a well-established Western-centred understanding of creativity and art (singular). This series will strongly support global perspectives, cross-cultural studies, critical theories, creative dissemination and a broader re-framing of the role of the arts for learning and for society.

The book series Studies in Religion and the Arts promotes the development of discourses for exploring the religious dimensions of the verbal, visual and performing arts. The goal of the series is to form an international and multi-disciplinary forum for the scholarly discussion on the expression of religious sentiments in art.

The series has published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
Encounters across Arts, Sciences and Humanities
Experimental Practices seeks to develop the status of science, art, and literature as truly experimental practices and forms of knowledge production – each borrowing from the other in order to further its drive to invention and innovation.
In times of environmental, political, and technological transformation and crisis, the urge to forge new alliances between the humanities, arts, and sciences has given rise to disciplinary hybrids, such as the environmental humanities, the medical humanities, artistic research, or the neurohumanities – all of which signal a turn towards ecological, more-than-human and posthumanist approaches in resonance with a broad array of worldly concerns. In this context, Experimental Practices is a platform for experimental forms of research at the intersections of the humanities, sciences, as well as activists outside academia around issues that shape contemporary and future cultures.
Taking “experimentation” as the practice, topic, and aim of the series, the editors welcome monographs or collected volumes around a specific concept or theme that contribute and enact a practice-based as well as theory-driven poetics of knowledge.
The series is committed to continue a fruitful collaboration with the international SLSA (Society for the Study of Literature, Science, and the Arts), including its independent European branch SLSAeu.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.

This book depicts the long rich life and wide ranging work of Count Athanasius Raczyński (1788-1874). By exploring his complex personality, his processes of thought and his accomplishments, it reveals a man at once a wealthy aristocrat, a Pole in the Prussian diplomatic service, an active participant in and perceptive observer and critical commentator on political life, a connoisseur and art collector of European renown, and the author of ground breaking studies on German and Portuguese art – in short a distinguished and fascinating nineteenth century figure.
