Routledge Research in Ignorance Studies


About the Series

This timely series brings together cutting-edge scholarship in the emergent field of studies on the flipside of knowledge. It addresses the blossoming interest – within an increasing number of disciplines – in the uses and deployment of strategic not knowing, the right to nonknowledge, of forgetting, of producing and keeping secrets.

From classical perspectives on the unknown to the most recent analyses in theology, brain research, decision making, economics, political science, ethnic discrimination and racism studies, feminist theory, post-colonial studies, and science and technology studies, this interdisciplinary series will serve as an indispensable resource for both students and scholars. The Routledge Research in Ignorance Studies series places the study of ignorance in historical and interdisciplinary context.
