About this series
The series originates from the need to create a more proactive platform in the form of monographs and edited volumes in thematic collections, to contribute to the new emerging fields within art and humanistic research, and also to discuss the ongoing crisis of the humanities and its possible solutions, in a spirit that should be both critical and self-critical.
"Numanities" (New Humanities) aim at unifying the various approaches and potentials of arts and humanities in the context, dynamics and problems of current societies.
The series, indexed in Scopus, is intended to target an academic audience interested in the following areas:
- Traditional fields of humanities whose research paths are focused on issues of current concern;
- New fields of humanities emerged to meet the demands of societal changes;
- Multi/Inter/Cross/Transdisciplinary dialogues between humanities and social and/or natural sciences;
- Humanities “in disguise”, that is, those fields (currently belonging to other spheres), that remain rooted in a humanistic vision of the world;
- Forms of investigations and reflections, in which the humanities monitor and critically assess their scientific status and social condition;
- Forms of research animated by creative and innovative humanities-based approaches;
- Applied humanities.
