Book series: TRANSitions. Transdisciplinary, Transmedial and Transnational Cultural Studies

Editors: Renata Dampc-Jarosz (University of Silesia), Jadwiga Kita-Huber (Jagiellonian University)

Publishing House: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht Unipress (Imprint of BRILL Deutschland)

The series is intended to provide a platform for literary and cultural studies that situate themselves at interfaces between different disciplines, media and languages. Its aim is to promote research on transnationality, transmediality and intertextuality in literature and culture by bringing out scholarly texts which examine specific transfer phenomena. Especially welcome are papers that make use of recent theoretical approaches to literary and cultural studies and develop them further while focusing on such areas and themes as translation and editorial studies or the relationship between literature and material culture.   

The planned volumes of the series will offer diachronic and/or synchronic insights into literary and socio-cultural phenomena in the world, such as migration and globalisation, the paradigm shift of engagement, national community/identity versus ethnicity, or new forms of communication, presented in a complementary way from the perspective of the humanities, social sciences, information technology and other sciences. Another focus is on works on archival research that take concrete European archival holdings as their starting point and pursue decidedly interdisciplinary perspectives.  

The languages of publication are English, German and Romance languages. The volumes of the series are peer-reviewed.
