This book examines material and multi-sensorial expressions of Shiʿi Islam in diverse, and understudied demographic and geographic contexts.It engages with conceptual debates and makes several propositions that push the frontiers of scholarship on Islamic and Religious Studies, Material Religion, Heritage Studies, and Anthropology and Sociology of Religion.The contributions presented in this volume demonstrate how material things and less thing-like materialities make the praesentia and potentia of the Sacred tangible, how they cultivate intimate relations between human and more-than-human beings, and how they act as links and gateways to the Elsewhere and Otherworldly. The volume posits that materialities of religion are integral to processes of heritagization shaped by competing social and political actors involved in the construction and canonization of religious—in this case, Shiʿi—heritage.
Foro Hispánico is a peer-reviewed book series devoted to the study of Spanish and Spanish-American culture(s) in the global world. The series offers a forum for internationally focused research that analyses how cultural and literary practices both shape, and themselves are shaped by, global challenges in the Spanish speaking world.
Proposals are welcome for academic monographs and joint volumes, both in English and Spanish. We especially encourage studies that cross disciplines and national borders. Possible interdisciplinary topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the connections between cultural and literary practices, and immigration, race, gender, politics, art, intellectual history, travel writing, rhetoric and anthropology.

Foro Hispánico es una colección académica revisada por pares de monografías centradas en el estudio de las culturas españolas e hispanoamericanas dentro del contexto del mundo globalizado. La colección ofrece un foro para investigaciones desarrolladas en el ámbito internacional que se centren sobre cómo las prácticas culturales y literarias dan y toman forma a los desafíos globales que acontecen en el mundo de lengua española.

Son bienvenidas propuestas para monografías académicas y volúmenes científicos conjuntos escritos tanto en español como en inglés. Especialmente incentivamos estudios transdisciplinares y transnacionales. Algunos temas de posible interés interdisciplinar incluyen, pero no se limitan tan sólo a estas, las conexiones entre prácticas culturales y literarias e inmigración, género, política, arte, historia intelectual, escritura de viaje, retórica y antropología.

German Monitor (founded in 1979) is a series for themed edited volumes on literature, culture and politics in the German-speaking world since 1945. Our approach is inclusive: some volumes focus on single authors, political figures or genres; other volumes explore themes such as narratives of trauma, German left-wing terrorism, local/global narratives, and the roles that Germany, Austria, and Switzerland play in Europe today.

We welcome proposals for interdisciplinary volumes as well as those with a specifically literary, cultural or political focus. Many of our contributors are based in German Studies, others in disciplines such as Comparative Literature, Film Studies, Musicology, History, Museum Studies, and Political Science.

The book series has a system of double peer-reviewing. We publish volumes in German or English.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
Questions about your manuscript and proposals can also be directed to the Editor in Chief, Laura Bradley.

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

Amsterdam Studies on Cultural Identity
Imagology, the study of cross-national perceptions and images as expressed in literary discourse, has for many decades been one of the more challenging and promising branches of Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies.
Its focus lies in the attitudes, stereotypes and prejudices about our own and others' national characters; attitudes which govern our rhetoric, discursive representation, literary activity and - ultimately - international relations at large. To recognize "national characters" as textual (frequently literary) constructs necessitates a textual and historical analysis of their typology, their discursive expression and dissemination, by historians and literary scholars.
The series Studia Imagologica, which will accommodate scholarly monographs and collected volumes in English, French or German provides a forum for this literary-historical specialism.
Before their inclusion in Studia Imagologica volumes and monographs will be subjected to peer-review.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the publisher at BRILL, Masja Horn.
Embodied Perspectives in Philosophy, the Arts, and the Human Sciences
Series Editor:
This series aims to publish monographs and anthologies of new research in the interdisciplinary field of somaesthetics. The field can be briefly defined as the critical study and meliorative cultivation of the soma as our medium of perceptual appreciation (aesthesis) and performance but also as the site of our expressive self-fashioning. Somaesthetics is, therefore, concerned with a wide diversity of knowledge forms, discourses, social practices and institutions, cultural traditions and values, and bodily disciplines that structure (or could improve) such somatic understanding and cultivation. It is not limited to one theoretical field, academic or professional vocabulary, cultural ideology, or particular set of bodily disciplines. Rather it aims to provide a more fruitful interaction and integration of the very diverse forms of somatic knowledge currently being practiced and pursued.
Initially the books would focus on the key disciplines and research areas from which somaesthetics emerged and in which it has been most actively researched. These are philosophy, aesthetics, cultural studies, art history, race and gender theory, performance studies (including dance and theatre), education, social theory, and human computer technology and gaming.

Forthcoming titles:
Future books will be on such subjects as:
Somaesthetics and Literature
Somaesthetics and Care
Somaesthetics and Sexuality
Somaesthetics and Education
Somaesthetics and Architecture
Somaesthetics and Sport
Somaesthetics and Biopolitics
Somaesthetics and Religious Practices

Editor:
A team of experts view the relationship between rulers and their leading subjects across Europe and further afield. If God-derived authority legitimized a monarch’s rule, it did not necessarily prevent opposition to perceived arbitrary government as subjects put forward the counter-concept of consensual rule. The provincial elite might serve the ruler as advisors and officers at court but they also possessed an independent source of power based on their extensive estates. While monarchs wanted to perpetuate a system in which they could watch over members of the regional elite at court and keep them busy, they sought to make use of them as local and provincial administrators, that is, as long as they remained loyal: a fraught balancing act.  

Contributors include: Hélder Carvalhal, Peter Edwards, Jemma Field, Cailean Gallagher, Pedro José Herades-Ruiz, Graeme S. Millen, Vita Malašinskiené, Tibor Monostori, Steve Murdoch, David Potter, Peter S. Roberts, Irene Maria Vicente-Martin, and Matthias Wong.
The aim of the Brill Research Perspectives in Philosophy of Education (RPPES) series is to provide short monographs on central aspects of the field of philosophy of education, such as central thinkers (classical and recent), seminal works, movements and schools of thought, important ideas and concepts. The long-term aim is to establish an encyclopedic series of philosophy of education monographs, where each volume can be updated when needed, and main subjects can be expanded and specified to have more than one volume.

RPPES will offer a comprehensive reference resource for scholars and students working in the areas of, especially, philosophy of education, pedagogy – i.e. Pädagogik, pédagogique, pedagogía – and educational studies in general. Moreover, through its philosophical emphasis and depth, the series will be of interest to general philosophy, i.e. logics, theory of knowledge, metaphysics, ethics, political and social philosophy as well as poetics and aesthetics and the history of philosophy.

The series provides in-depth scholarly work on the main issues and figures in philosophy of education. This includes scholarly studies of classics such as Plato, Rousseau, Dewey et al., systematic analysis of concepts such as learning, childhood, virtue, citizenship education and imagination, as well as the major traditions and schools within philosophy of education.

The series makes it a priority to include not just established views and figures, but also up-and-coming scholars and marginal perspectives, thus bridging gaps between philosophy of education, philosophy and education, as well as Anglophone and non-Anglophone research communities. Each monograph is fully peer-reviewed and referenced and provides an overview of the most up-to-date research in the area dealt with. RPPES will be an invaluable resource for scholars wishing to draw on the latest research, as well as a dynamic resource for teaching and for students working in philosophy, education and related fields.
