Interdisciplinary Studies of the Paderborn Graduate Center for Arts and Humanities

Edited by Sabiene Autsch, Andrea Becher, Volker Peckhaus and Jochen Schmidt.

The new series "Interdisciplinary Studies of the Paderborn Graduate Center for Arts and Humanities" considers research that has been produced in the context of the Graduate Center of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities at Paderborn University (GKW). Each volume presents the epistemological potential of interdisciplinary work based on research findings. In this context, interdisciplinarity is not merely understood as the compilation of research findings from different disciplinary perspectives. Rather, it brings these perspectives into relation, thereby broadening horizons. The series seeks to stand at the intersection of academic research and reflection on one's own academic practice by focusing on the distinct features of one's own disciplinary perspective and knowledge culture. The aim of the series is to provide a platform that is open to various approaches within interdisciplinary cultural studies.

Requests for publication should be addressed to the editors.
