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 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.
Brill Research Perspectives in Art and Law, aims to gather outstanding contributions to the fascinating debate at the intersection of art and law. The focus of this book series involves all the aspects (philosophical, juridical, sociological, technological and cultural) characterizing the relationship between law and art.
Brill Research Perspectives in Religion and the Arts presents extended reference articles on topics within the comprehensive field of world religions and the arts, from the traditional fine arts to newer fields of visual culture and material culture. References will be hyperlinked to original source materials when possible, offering both scholars and students the opportunity to stay current with the literature or to begin their research. Written as a single-author monograph with accompanying critical bibliography, each 50 to 100 page article provides an overview of the specific topic, its history within the larger discipline of religion and the arts, recent innovations in scholarship, critical commentary, and the unique analysis of the author's perspectives.
Unter dem Titel eikones hat der Nationale Forschungsschwerpunkt Bildkritik an der Universität Basel eine Buchreihe im Rahmen der bildtheoretischen Forschung gegründet. Darin erscheinen Monographien und Sammelbände, die im Rahmen der Forschungsaktivitäten des NFS Bildkritik entstehen, sowie andere Arbeiten, die sich in diesem Themenspektrum angliedern. Die Buchreihe versteht sich als neue Plattform kritischer Bildforschung unter der Leitfrage nach der gegenwärtigen Macht und Bedeutung der Bilder.

eikones vereinigt mehr als 50 Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler an der Universität Basel. Das interdisziplinäre Forschungsprojekt folgt der Leitfrage, welche Macht und Bedeutung Bilder haben. Durch die Zusammenarbeit unterschiedlicher Disziplinen (Philosophie, Kunstgeschichte, Literaturwissenschaft, Designforschung, Wissenschaftsgeschichte, Ägyptologie, Informatik etc.) an gemeinsamen Fragestellungen wird in diesem Forschungszentrum das Bild als Symbolsystem erforscht. Der NFS Bildkritik verbindet Grundlagenforschung mit Einzelfallstudien und integriert andere Universitäten, Fachhochschulen und Sammlungen zu einem innovativen, interdisziplinären Forschungszentrum mit internationaler Ausstrahlung.
