Innovations in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Creative Arts

Series Editors: Anthony Elliott and Jennifer Rutherford

Hawke Research Institute, University of South Australia

This series addresses the importance of innovative contemporary, comparative and conceptual research on the cultural and institutional contradications of our times and our lives in these times. Antinomies publishes theoretically innovative work that critically examines the ways in which social, cultural, political and aesthetic change is rendered visible in the global age, and that is attentive to novel contradictions arising from global transformations. Books in the Series are from authors both well-established and early careers researchers. Authors will be recruited from many, diverse countries – but a particular feature of the Series will be its strong focus on research from Asia and Australasia. The Series addresses the diverse signatures of contemporary global contradictions, and as such seeks to promote novel transdisciplinary understandings in the humanities, social sciences and creative arts.

The Series Editors are especially interested in publishing books in the following areas that fit with the broad remit of the series:

  • New architectures of subjectivity
  • Cultural sociology
  • Reinvention of cities and urban transformations
  • Digital life and the post-human
  • Emerging forms of global creative practice
  • Culture and the aesthetic
