With this Series, the African-Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies (AEGIS) provides a venue for the publication of works drawn from the lively and expanding community of scholars with interests in Africa and its Diaspora. The AEGIS Series aims to publish books within the broad fields of study within the humanities and social sciences that would bring new approaches or innovative perspectives to the topics discussed. Titles comprise works that could also reflect established debate within African Studies if they provide new insights. Both individually-authored works and edited collections on focused themes will be considered.

Transdisziplinäre Perspektiven
Die Reihe „Ästhetische Praxis“ widmet sich der Untersuchung von Praxis-Dimensionen der Künste aus transdisziplinärer Perspektive, aber auch der Erforschung alltäglicher ästhetischer Praktiken. Thematisiert werden soll, wie sich Kunstwerke als Manifestationen von Praktiken, etwa von Übungen, Proben, Improvisationen, Schreibprozessen, Akten des Skizzierens oder Entwerfens, verstehen lassen. Diese Praktiken können darüber hinaus in ihrem jeweiligen ästhetischen Eigenwert betrachtet sowie in Kontexten jenseits der Kunstwelt erforscht werden. Weitere Schwerpunkte bilden Arbeiten zu ästhetischen Praktiken im Kontext einer postkolonialen Ästhetik sowie tätigkeitstheoretische Untersuchungen zum Verhältnis von Handeln, Praxis und ästhetischer Praxis, die die aktuelle praxeologische Wende in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften um eine ästhetische Perspektive ergänzen.

The series “Aesthetic Practice” is dedicated to the investigation of practice dimensions of the arts from a transdisciplinary perspective, but also to the exploration of everyday aesthetic practices.It will address how works of art can be understood as manifestations of practices, such as exercises, rehearsals, improvisations, writing processes, acts of sketching or designing. These practices can furthermore be considered in their eespective aesthetic intrinsic value as well as explored in contexts beyond the art world. Other focal points include work on aesthetic practices in the context of a postcolonial aesthetics as well as activity-theoretical investigations of the relationship between action, practice, and aesthetic practice, which complement the current praxeological turn in the humanities and social sciences with an aesthetic perspective.
As China is becoming an economic, political, and technological global power, Chinese transnational migrations have intensified and diversified. Such increased diversity and connectivity for overseas Chinese in all parts of the world, as well as return migration to China, call for renewed perspectives from various disciplines on Chinese migration in a global context. This handbook series covers the interplay between new migration modalities and the changing practices and identities of Chinese overseas. It brings people, communities, states, cultures in the new geopolitical context, and provide directions for future work in the field of migration and diaspora studies, human and social mobilities, transnational connections, and cultural identities.

The series published an average of two volumes per year over the last 5 years.
The dynamic processes of ordering we are witnessing around the world blend the extra-national with the national, the public with the private, the political and economic with the social and cultural. Issues of effectiveness, procedural and substantial justice, costs, incentives, voice, and inequality in these processes are growing in importance. This series aims to grasp these phenomena channeling them into the legal debate.

The series publishes books, authored or edited, covering various aspects of private, public, criminal, transnational and global law. The broad ambition of the series underlines the editors' belief that in the legal world there is a growing need to expand our knowledge of legal orders (national or supranational, official and unofficial), of their historical roots and of their practical dimensions.

The series Documenta Coranica is dedicated to the study of history of the Qurʾānic text as manifested in manuscripts and other sources. Documenta Coranica publishes witnesses of the Qurʾān from the early period in the shape of facsimile, accompanied by transcription and a commentary. The series makes codices on parchment, papyri, inscriptions, variant readings and other relevant sources for the history of the Qurʾān, accessible to the academic public. The first volumes contain manuscript fragments from Sanaa (DAM 01-25.1, DAM 01-27.1, DAM 01-29.1), the manuscript Ma VI 165 (Tübingen), and the codex Or. 2165 of the British Library.

The series comprises two sections: Manuscripta contains facsimile editions of Qurʾānic manuscripts with a line-by-line transcript in Modern Arabic script on the opposite page and a commentary about codicology, paleography, variant readings and verse numbering explaining content and characteristics of each manuscript. Testimonia et Studia contains studies about material evidence for the history of the Qurʾān, as manifested on papyrus, stone and rock inscriptions etc., as well in exegetical, narrative and philological sources.

Documenta Coranica inscribes itself into a German-French cooperation: in the framework of the research project Coranica, 2011-2014, and Paleocoran 2015-2018, both funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft and the Agence Nationale de la Recherche.

East Asian Comparative Literature and Culture responds to the urgent need for a more complex understanding and appreciation of this region by publishing substantial comparative research on the literary and cultural traditions of East Asia and their relation to the world. We showcase original research on the methodology and practice of comparison, including intra- and trans-regional comparisons of China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam; explorations of entanglements and mutual representations of Western and East Asian traditions; examinations of the relationship between the East Asian Sinographic Sphere and non-Sinographic textual cultures such as Manchu, Uyghur, and Tibetan; and multipolar comparisons that examine East Asian literatures and cultures in the light of their relations with South and Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa, or Latin America.

The series focuses on the interpretive sciences, namely core humanities disciplines such as literature, history, religion, philosophy and thought, art history, musicology, performance or media studies. It also welcomes contributions adopting culturally-informed approaches in archeology, historical geography, anthropology, political science, sociology, or linguistics. Our historical moment demands that we as scholars combine comparative analysis with the depth of area-study-expertise and philology, theoretical acumen, and a courageous orientation towards the exploration of fundamental questions that matter to us today. This is the tall order that this book series and the authors we feature are taking on. We are confident, however, that East Asian Comparative Literature and Culture will enable a deeper mutual understanding, and successfully integrate knowledge about and approaches to different literary and cultural traditions through critical comparative examination. We see clearly the relevance of the humanities to the world we are living in now, and aim to make significant contributions to humanistic scholarship and, ultimately, to the creation of a less divisive, more equal, and better world for all.
