The series entitled Consciousness, Literature and the Arts is a scholarly line of books consisting of monographs (and thematic collections of articles), in the English language, dealing with a wide variety of areas, problems, and applications within the broad field of consciousness studies in relation to literature and the arts with all their sub-genres.

Visualising the Middle Ages is dedicated to innovative scholarship on art history and material cultures from the end of antiquity to c. 1500. The editors welcome contributions that focus on medieval Europe, as well as those that expand beyond traditional geographic and spiritual boundaries. We welcome contributions across geographies and spiritual traditions. We encourage a wide range of approaches.

The series aims to bridge the history of art and architecture and other fields in medieval studies and beyond. It seeks work with an impact beyond disciplinary confines and established methodological paths.

Formats may include monographs, essay collections, documentary sources and translations. Volumes may contain a substantial number of high-quality black-and-white and full-colour illustrations. Additional material can be included online, such as further illustrations, audio, video, or websites.

Studies and Sources in the Material and Visual History of Science
Editors: and
Nuncius Series explores the material sources of scientific endeavor, such as scientific instruments and collections, the specific settings of experimental practice, and the interactions between sciences and arts. The materiality of science is a fundamental source for the understanding of its history, and the visual representation of its concepts and objects is equally crucial. Nuncius Series focuses on the exploration of increasingly-varied modes of visual description of observed reality.

The series also invites to explore the role of iconography and portraiture in the self-representation of the scientist. Interpretative studies and documentary surveys are both welcome.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by email to the publisher Stefan Einarson or to one of the series editors: Marco Beretta (University of Bologna) or Sven Dupré (Utrecht University / University of Amsterdam). For information on how to submit a book proposal, please consult the Brill Author Guide.
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.

Founded in 1947 the The Netherlands Yearbook for History of Art/Nederlands Kunsthistorisch Jaarboek (NKJ) is a peer-reviewed annual, which has established an international reputation for publishing outstanding articles that reflect the variety and diversity of approaches to the study of Netherlandish art and culture. The NKJ aims to foster traditional art historical scholarship and to open up the field to innovative cross disciplinary developments. The NKJ is listed in the Arts & Humanities Citation Index (Web of Science).

Each volume is dedicated to a particular theme. Past volumes have included monographic studies on Rogier van der Weyden and Rubens, and broader cultural and historical studies such as Picturing the Exotic, Body and Embodiment, Art and Science and Art and Migration.

Contributions are by internationally renowned scholars, while at the same time, the NKJ offers a platform for young talent. Although articles are mostly in English, the NKJ aims to encourage international exchange: contributions in Dutch, French or German are also published, accompanied by an English summary.

Graffiti as Political Protest in Greece, Italy, Poland, and the United States
Author:
Words of the Prophets treats graffiti as a form of political prophecy. Whether we consider austerity in Thessaloniki, Camorra infiltration in Naples, the fall of Communism in Gdansk, or the rise of gang warfare in Chicago, graffiti is a form of democratic self-expression that dates back to Periclean Athens and the Book of Daniel. Words of the Prophets offers close readings of 400 original photographs taken between 2014 and 2021 in Philadelphia, Venice, Milan, Florence, Syracuse, and Warsaw, alongside literary works by Pawel Huelle, films by Andrezj Wajda, Antonio Capua, and music videos by Natasha Bedingfield and Beyoncé. A third of the book is dedicated to interviews with Krik Kong, Iwona Zajac, Ponchee.193, Jay Pop, Ser, Simoni Fontana, and Mattia Campo Dall’Orto.
