The new series "Interdisciplinary Studies of the Paderborn Graduate Centre for Cultural Studies" takes into account research that has been produced in the context of the Graduate Centre of the Faculty of Cultural Studies at Paderborn University (GKW). The volumes consistently specify the epistemic potential of interdisciplinary work derived from the research findings. Interdisciplinarity is not merely understood as the compilation of research findings from different disciplinary perspectives. Rather, it relates these perspectives and thus broadens horizons. The series claims to stand at the intersection of academic research and reflection on one's own academic practice by focusing on the particularities of one's own disciplinary perspective and knowledge culture. The aim of the series is to provide a thematically open platform for different approaches within interdisciplinary cultural studies.
