In the framework of this book series, we would like to encourage authors from different backgrounds to engage in the study of philosophical as well as sociological phenomena of contemporary Europe. Contributions may come from philosophy, political science, sociology, history, social psychology, ethnology, political anthropology and history of ideas.
Research in contemporary philosophy and history of ideas still often mentally maps Europe as divided and separate West and East. This overemphasizes barriers between people who often shared similar approaches and practices, between interrelated social phenomena or just neighboring regions. We seek contributions that employ approaches from philosophy, sociology and history of ideas, whether or not these are integrated with insights of neighboring disciplines, such as sociology, anthropology, political science, or cultural and gender studies. Discussions of comparative and transnational perspectives are particularly welcome.
The volumes will range from classical monographs of single case studies via comparative accomplishments to collective edited volumes. Authors are welcome to contribute manuscripts of monographs and collective works. Also post conference volumes and outstanding dissertations will be considered for publication.
The language of publication in the series will be English, however works written in German and French may as well be considered for publication.
