New Work in the Theoretical Humanities is associated with Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities, a leading international interdisciplinary journal that has done much to consolidate the field of research designated by its subtitle and which has been at the forefront of publication for three decades. The book series publishes generous edited collections across the humanities as informed by European philosophy and literary and cultural theory. It has a strong interest in aesthetics and art theory and also features work in those areas of the social sciences, such as social theory and political theory, that are informed by Angelaki's core disciplinary concentration. This broad latitude is disciplined by a strong sense of identity and the series editors' long experience of research and teaching in the humanities. The Angelaki journal is well known for its exceptionally substantial special issues. New Work in the Theoretical Humanities publishes vanguard collections on current developments in the energetic and increasingly international field of the theoretical humanities as well as volumes on major living thinkers and writers and those of the recent past. Volumes in the series are conceived as broad but integrated treatments of their themes, with the intention of producing contributions to the literature of lasting value.
