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.
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

We publish high quality research on specific trends in single arts, countries and regions, as well as comparative and interdisciplinary studies in the interrelation between the different arts as well as between the arts, social and political contexts and cultural life in the broadest sense and all its diversity.

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.
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.
