The Africa in the Global Space series is an innovative and scholarly space providing analyses and interrogations of diverse perspectives on Africa’s role and contributions to the global socio-cultural, political, educational and developmental debates. The series provides an-up-to-date scholarly appraisal to critical questions and research on the continental trends on various subjects and concerns of paramount importance to globalization and development in Africa (politics, democracy, education, economics, philosophy, religion, gender, technology, global relationships and the role of government and non-governmental organizations). The series is dedicated to increasing the understanding of Africa’s internal and international relations, and developmental trends and policies through comparative, cross-cultural and international perspectives. This essential series that is developed by an international editorial board of emerging and established scholars is a visionary and interdisciplinary space that engages informed debates on Africa’s participation in the global nexus.

The transdisciplinary series Coding Gender in Romance Cultures offers an international forum for discussion of gender-related work in the field of Romance Cultures. The series focuses on audiovisual and digital media (film, opera, TV, internet), as privileged research fields in the negotiations of gender technologies. As products of cultural industries, media are often used to stabilize heteronormative gender models. The series’ research aims to render these mechanisms visible. Furthermore, the series reveals the innovative and transgressive potential of digital and audiovisual media for defining new alternative gender codes. Gender-specific and epistemological studies investigating how various media shape the body, perspective and gender constitute the pivotal point of the research interests of the series.

This series highlights leading-edge conflict transformation and peacebuilding work that is achieved through engaged scholarship in the contemporary world. Volumes in the series demonstrate the relationship between conflict and systemic issues related to culture, society, the environment, politics, history, and economics. The series emphasizes the lived experience of conflict transformation and peacebuilding for practitioners, as well as novel ways of representing the spectrum of lived experiences of people involved in conflict transformation and building. These volumes show the relationship between theory and practice, consider a variety of modes and domains of communication and interaction, and are written to engage multiple audiences.

The aim of the series is to introduce new, incisive analyses of literature and media in

different cultural contexts. The series will focus on the phenomena that are inderdisciplinary

and dissolve the boundary between literature and media such as film, music

video, computer games etc. The idea behind the series is to show how our traditional

understanding of literature can be transformed by the cultural, social and technological

contexts. The successive studies will be informed by the scholarly background

of contemporary literary theory and media studies, while seeking to relate literature

and media to the challenges of contemporary world. The books published in

the series will bridge the gap between diverse discourses and involve different fields

of study, e.g. philosophy, gender studies, cultural studies etc.

Globally today, television, film and the internet comprise the principal sources of cultural consumption and engagement. Despite this, these areas have not featured strongly in the cultural study of disability. This book series will provide the first specific outlet for international scholars of disability to present their work on these topics.

The series will build a body of work that brings together critical analysis of disability and impairments in media and culture. The series expands the work currently undertaken in literary studies on disability by using media and cultural theory to understand the place of disability and impairment in a range of media and cultural forms.

The series encourages the development of work on disabled people in the media, within the media industries and in the wider cultural sphere. Whilst film and television analysis will be central to this series, we also encourage work on disability in other media, including journalism, radio, the internet and gaming.

We welcome proposals from media studies: narrative constructions of disability; technical aspects of media production; disability, the economy and society; the impact of social media and gaming on disabled identities; and the role of architecture and image. Cultural studies are also encouraged: the uses of disabled and chronically ill bodies, ‘cripping culture’, corporeal projections in culture, intersectional identities, advertising, and the uses of cultural theory in furthering understandings of ableism and disablism.

All proposals and manuscripts will be rigorously peer reviewed. The language of publication is English, although we welcome submissions from around the world and on topics that may take as their focus non-English media. We welcome new proposals for monographs and edited collections.

This series seeks to publish critical and nuanced scholarship in the field of Black European Studies. Moving beyond and building on the Black Atlantic approach, books in this series will underscore the existence, diversity and evolution of Black Europe. They will provide historical, intersectional and interdisciplinary perspectives on how Black diasporic peoples have reconfigured the boundaries of Black identity making, claim making and politics; created counterdiscourses and counterpublics on race, colonialism, postcolonialism and racism; and forged transnational connections and solidarities across Europe and the globe. The series will also illustrate the ways that Black European diasporic peoples have employed intellectual, socio-political, artistic/cultural, affective, digital and pedagogical work to aid their communities and causes, challenge their exclusion and cultivate ties with their allies, thus gaining recognition in their societies and beyond.

Representing the field’s dynamic growth methodologically, geographically and culturally, the series will also collectively interrogate notions of Blackness, Black diasporic culture and Europeanness while also challenging the boundaries of Europe. Books in the series will critically examine how race and ethnicity intersect with the themes of gender, nationality, class, religion, politics, kinship, sexuality, affect and the transnational, offering comparative and international perspectives. One of the main goals of the series is to introduce and produce rigorous academic research that connects not only with individuals in academia but also with a broader public.

Areas of interest:

  • Social movements
  • Racial discourses and politics
  • Empire, slavery and colonialism
  • Decolonialization and postcolonialism
  • Gender, sexuality and intersectionality
  • Black activism (in all its forms)
  • Racial and political violence and surveillance
  • Racial constructions
  • Diasporic practices
  • Race and racialization in the ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary eras
  • Identity, representation and cultural productions (music, art, literature, etc.)
  • Memory
  • Migration and immigration
  • Citizenship
  • State building and diplomacy
  • Nations and nationalisms

All proposals and manuscripts will be rigorously peer reviewed. The language of publication is English. We welcome new proposals for monographs and edited collections.

Indigenous Cultures of Latin America: Past and Present is a new bilingual series that welcomes book proposals, in English or Spanish, focused on the fields of anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, ethnohistory, and art history, among others. We encourage original proposals for projects that use a conjunctive approach to understanding beliefs and lifeways of prehispanic, colonial period, and contemporary indigenous peoples inhabiting Latin America, broadly defined (i.e. extending into parts of the U.S. Southeast and Southwest), relying on a combination of methodologies and data sets to interpret the subject matter. We further encourage projects that utilize decolonizing methodologies and seek to promote research and fieldwork undertaken in collaboration with local indigenous communities and/or indigenous consultants.
The series will publish academic monographs, edited collections, and readers. All book proposals and manuscripts will be subject to a rigorous single-blind peer review process, conducted by experts in the respective field(s) of study.

Proposals and author/volume editor CVs should be sent to the Series Editor, Dr. Gabrielle Vail,
at vailg@email.unc.edu.
