Omslag van het boek 'The Edinburgh Companion to the New European Humanities' (2023)

The Edinburgh Companion to the New European Humanities assesses the rise of the ‘New’ Humanities alongside the traditional disciplines and inter-disciplinary ‘studies’ areas. The volume is edited by Rosi Braidotti, Daan Oostveen (both Utrecht University), Hiltraud Casper-Hehne (University of Göttingen), and Marjan Ivković (University of Belgrade).

‘New’ or ‘Post’ Humanities

This is the first collection that highlights the strengths and contributions of the Humanities in the European region. The Edinburgh Companion to the New European Humanities stresses the positive and multidimensional impact of the Humanities on core areas of human experience, and their ability to formulate new frames to represent our collective and individual relation to the world. Further, it explores new ethical social imaginaries, gendered scenarios and spaces of decolonial transculturality.

The publication combines theoretical speculation with policy-making pragmatism and draws from many European languages and traditions. In its European scope and institutional representation, it takes an original approach and incorporates an exceptional degree of inter and trans-disciplinarity, covering areas including the intercultural humanities, post- and decolonial perspectives, digital humanities, medical humanities, environmental humanities and more.
