What is the role of the humanities as critical disciplines in contemporary society? What are the distinctive methodologies that define humanities research today? How can we evaluate the limitations of the classical framework of critique (ideology critique, universal validity)? How can we engage in critique as embedded practice, with a comparative focus on European, East-Asian, American, and other world traditions that surpass the wish for a Eurocentric universalism?

This series has a two-fold aim: to apply the best humanities methodologies in the study of a wide range of issues that are of global, trans-national significance; and, at the same time, to develop a self-reflective critique and transformation of those methodologies themselves. The books in this series will contribute to a re-imagination of critique itself; its powers, its strengths, and its possible effects. Grounded in the core humanities disciplines (including philosophy, literature and cultural studies), the series will refound and sharpen critique, thus situating the critical humanities at the centre of our collective response to the fundamental demands of the twenty-first century.

The series is linked to the international research network Terra Critica: Interdisciplinary Network for the Critical Humanities, which the editors Birgit M. Kaiser and Kathrin Thiele founded and have coordinated since 2012 (www.terracritica.net), and of which Timothy O’Leary is a member.
