A Multidisciplinary Perspective
Editor: Anna Slaczka
Re-envisioning Śiva Naṭarāja. A Multidisciplinary Perspective offers new insights into the dancing Śiva as icon and concept. Each of the seven essays in this volume addresses an aspect of the Naṭarāja (a specific form of the dancing Śiva) that has been until now untouched by scholars, or one for which the research is here moved substantially forward. Through the use of hitherto unexplored materials - murals, prints, icons, Sanskrit iconographic and ritual texts, Tamil inscriptions, and the analysis of metal alloys and casting techniques - old views are checked and challenged, and new ideas are proposed. Combining a wide range of fields of expertise, the volume will add to our knowledge about this well-studied, but poorly understood icon. With contributions by Anna A. Ślączka, Anna L. Dallapiccola, Nicolas Cane, Leslie C. Orr, Richard H. Davis, Sharada Srinivasan, Libbie Mills, Corinna Wessels-Mevissen.
This book proposes to investigate the arts from the inside, namely to consider, first and foremost, what artists do to create their works in order to proceed fruitfully in the direction of their evaluation and explanation. To this end, it develops a philosophical inquiry that examines the ground zero of the arts, their common foundations, namely the rules for artistic creation, the processes that involve artists in their activities, the forms that they can or cannot achieve. This proposal and its outline for a rule-based ontology of the arts addresses four themes: the relationship between human nature and artistic practices, the features of art-making, the conception of artworks as structures, and the social nature of the arts.

Primary Sources Collections
The collection of art sales catalogues on microfiche is based on the famous art historical reference work by Frits Lugt, covering art sales catalogues of the period 1600 to 1900. Customers for this collection receive a free subscription to the online edition of Lugt's Répertoire. Lugt's Répertoire online provides detailed microfiche information for easy access to the fiche collection.

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.
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.
