New Transnational Studies Series with Springer Publishing (2017) to seek submissions from scholars and practitioners in fields related to series foci as outlined below.
Global Germany in Transnational Dialogues presents original research work from contributors in a cutting-edge collection of case and monograph studies in humanities, business, economics, law, education, cultural studies and science. It offers concise yet in-depth overviews of contemporary ties between Germany and nations in flux, such as Afghanistan, Korea, and Israel, as well as societies with long-standing ties to the Federal Republic. It serves as an arena for both scholars and practitioners to apply comparative and interconnected research outcomes connected to topics such as educational policies, Muslimness, refugee integration, nation branding and digital societies to other transnational contexts. This series is an interdisciplinary project to offer a fresh look at Germany’s relations to other countries in the 21st century. The bilateral concept is anchored in a renewed interest in Germany’s innovative stance on identity politics, fiscal policies, civil law and national cultures. The series caters to a renewed interest in transnational studies and the actors working across the boundaries of nation states.
The series begins with German-Australian Encounters and Cultural Transfers: Global Dynamics in Transnational Lands (Springer 2017) and covers recent events and phenomena in contemporary German transnational contexts with other cultures and nation states IN THE NEW CENTURY (since 2000).
Rather than prioritising traditional areas of scholarship, this series seeks to elicit contributions from academics and relevant practitioners. The series also aims at a balanced ratio between academic tradition and intellectual innovative dialogue about transnationalism studies in twenty-first century.
Possible topics and areas of inquiry include but are not limited to:
- Transnational connections between Germany and other nations (in Asia, Europe, Middle East, Africa)
- Discipline-specific areas such as
- Popular culture
