Die Begriffe „Transformationen", „Differenzierungen" und „Perspektiven" bezeichnen zentrale Aufgaben und Leistungen von Geschichtswissenschaft im 21. Jahrhundert. Stets ist sie gefordert, etablierte Narrative zu hinterfragen. Das kann zur Transformation von Geschichtsbildern und Meistererzählungen führen. Häufiger aber geht es darum, durch neue Erkenntnisse zu differenzierteren Darstellungen zu gelangen oder bekannte Sachverhalte aus einer anderen Perspektive zu beleuchten. Zugleich wird sich die historische Forschung jedoch immer ihrer eigenen perspektivischen Gebundenheit bewusst sein.

In der Reihe werden Monographien und Sammelbände publiziert, die am Historischen Seminar der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität entstanden sind. Sie steht aber auch anderen Autorinnen und Autoren offen.

In recent years, critical researchers, educators, and activists have become aware of the problems and limitations that have resulted by placing the ‘human’ at the center of all societal conceptualizations, concerns, and practices. Across fields, ranging from medical research laboratory practices—to the construction of the humanities—to the social sciences—to environmental studies (just to name a few), this anthropocentric focus is being called to question.

The goal of this book series is to provide scholars and readers with critical opportunities to contest this anthropocentrism, (1) by creating a textual field of Post-Anthropocentric Inquiry that generates critical spaces for (re)thinking philosophies, knowledges, and ways of being/living and performing, as well as methodologies and inquiries, that decenter the human, (2) while at the same time attempting always/already to actively transform inequities and injustices performed by human privilege on nonhuman others, traditionally disqualified human others, and the natural world more broadly. This Post-Anthropocentric Inquiry can represent difference and the multiple, while at the same time exploring and welcoming notions of indistinction.  Work that further develops and expands current notions of becoming (animal, earth), new feminist materialisms, critical posthuman sensibilities, hybrid existences (past and present) are example locations from which an intersectional, non-anthropocentric politics may emerge.  Additionally, post-anthropocentric inquiry and activism will always include the unthought, not-yet-considered modes of living, thinking, research while critically acknowledging that alternatives can create new dualisms, new forms of human privilege, and are not always liberatory for those labeled not human or for those human beings who have traditionally been marginalized.

Further, post-anthropocentric scholarship acknowledges, and attempts to (1) transform, the current post-anthropocentric predicament that facilitates neoliberal capitalism as all forms of life, matter, and relations have been/are constructed to serve market economies, and (2) examine the unprecedented human/nonhuman interaction with the increasingly intrusive and intimate technological order.  Post-anthropocentric inquiry is necessary as related to these contemporary aggressive, and all-encompassing post-human conditions.

Single or multiple authored manuscripts are encouraged that facilitate the development of Post-Anthropocentric Inquiry by addressing one issue, multiple issues, research purposes, methodologies, and/or forms of activism. Over a wide range of volumes that cross disciplines, the series will address broad issues, as mentioned above, and questions like the following: What is post-anthropocentric inquiry?  What is made possible, enabled by post-anthropocentric approaches and research methodologies?  How is post-anthropocentric research conducted without (re)privileging the human?  How does the work in fields that would decenter the human, like critical animal studies, intersect with professional content and practices in fields like education or medicine? How can coalitions be formed (and actions taken) that decenter the human and increase possibilities for all forms of justice, while countering capitalist and technological orders that devalue all forms of life?

In der Reihe Demokratie und Verwaltung steht die Analyse des Wandels von Verwaltungs- und Politikstrukturen im Mittelpunkt. Treibende Kräfte des Wandels sind die Europäisierung der Politik, der zunehmende Konsolidierungs- und Wettbewerbsdruck auf die öffentlichen Haushalte und Verwaltungen, die hohe Parteien- und Institutionenverdrossenheit und nicht zuletzt Digitalisierungsprozesse. Daher kann dieser Wandel nur durch Analyse der engen Verflechtungen zwischen Demokratie und Verwaltung verstanden werden. Insbesondere die empirische Analyse der Implementation von Verwaltungs- und Demokratiereformen soll im Mittelpunkt stehen. Die Reihe wird bewusst nicht auf die Grundlagenforschung verengt, sondern es sollen auch dem Wissens- und Praxistransfer verpflichtete Publikationen aufgenommen werden.

This series publishes scholarly contributions to the growing and ever-changing fields of film and literary studies across the Americas. Written in English or Spanish, the titles in this series include edited volumes, books by single authors, and translations of scholarly monographs. They typically investigate film and literature of the Americas, examining works and trends in relation to form, genre, culture, politics, historiography, and diverse areas of theory.

The term "Transamerican" implies transnational perspectives on creative work from all over the Americas, with an emphasis on new assessments of Latin American work, but is not constrained to studies of multiple national cinemas or literatures, and may venture beyond the Americas for comparative purposes. It also encompasses studies of single works or bodies of work from the Americas whose thematics or aesthetics warrant attention from a broad scholarly readership. The mission of the series is to provide a site of dialogue and new collaborations between scholars working on Transamerican film and literary studies throughout the Americas and other continents, emphasizing the region's growing diversity of critical and theoretical perspectives on film and literature.

 

Esta colección estará dedicada a publicar materiales sobre el cine y la literatura que se producen en el continente americano. Los materiales podrán estar escritos en español o en inglés, y podrán ser libros colectivos, trabajos elaborados por un autor individual, traducciones de estudios especializados, así como ediciones o traducciones académicas de textos literarios. En todos los casos serán textos orientados al estudio del cine y/o la literatura en la región continental, en términos de forma, género, cultura, política, historiografía o diversas áreas de la teoría.

El término "transamerican" implica una perspectiva transnacional en los estudios sobre trabajos creativos de todo el continente americano, con énfasis en la región latinoamericana, pero no se limita a los estudios sobre los cines o las literaturas nacionales de múltiples países. Por otra parte, admite la exploración, con fines comparativos, de terrenos que rebasan esta región, y puede incorporar estudios sobre las obras individuales o sobre el cúmulo del trabajo de un solo autor cuyas temáticas o características estéticas merecen la atención de una amplia comunidad de lectores especializados. La misión de la serie es ofrecer un espacio para el diálogo entre los investigadores que estudian el cine y la literatura en el continente americano y en otras regiones, así como enfatizar la existencia de una creciente diversidad de perspectivas teóricas y analíticas.

This series focuses on the history and culture of activists, artists and intellectuals who have worked within and against racially oppressive hierarchies in the first half of the twentieth century and beyond, and who have then sought to define and to achieve full equality once those formal hierarchies have been overturned. It explores the ways in which such individuals –- writers, scholars, campaigners and organizers, ministers, and artists and performers of all kinds -– located their resistance within a global context and forged connections with each other across national, linguistic, regional and imperial borders.

Disseminating the latest interdisciplinary scholarship on the history, literature and culture of anti-racist movements in Africa, the Caribbean, the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America, the series foregrounds, through a cross-disciplinary approach, the transnational and intercultural nature of these resistance movements. The series embraces a range of themes, including but not limited to antislavery, intellectual and literary networks, emigration and immigration, anti-imperialism, church-based and religious movements, civil rights, citizenship and identity, Black Power, resistance strategies, women’s movements, cultural transfer, white supremacy and anti-immigration, hip hop and global justice movements.

The series is affiliated with the Race and Resistance Research Programme at The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH), University of Oxford. Proposals are invited for sole- and joint-authored monographs as well as edited collections.

The America and Global Affairs series publishes scholarly manuscripts that explore the intersection between the politics, broadly understood, of the world’s most powerful state and the highly interdependent world of international actors and forces. Works in the series approach their subject matter through any of several lenses: political, historical, theoretical, sociological, cultural, and others. Manuscripts seek to explore American politics with regard to U.S. foreign relations, global political and economic theory, national security, global trends and issues, or conversely explore the impact of global affairs on the domestic political system, public opinion, governmental systems, or the constitutional order.
