This series features top-quality works that explore culture as an all-encompassing concept referring to an individual’s and society’s lifestyle, and the achievements of their mental and creative efforts, while focusing on the Slovenian environment. The works have international relevance and are innovative, and they are vital for disseminating knowledge of the subject matter they cover. The titles and topics of the individual volumes reflect the research and creative achievements of researchers at ZRC SAZU, which is based on a multidisciplinary approach and interconnections between numerous areas. The goal of the series is to publish in-depth studies in the humanities and social sciences not only by ZRC SAZU authors, but also by other authors from both Slovenia and elsewhere.
The series Thought, Society, Culture: Slovenian and South Eastern European Perspectives is unique in Slovenian humanities publishing. The main point of this cooperation is to connect a Slovenian research institution with a publisher that has an international profile and reach, and that can keep the international specialist and research community regularly abreast of the finest achievements in the Slovenian humanities.
Selection and procedure
The call for proposals is posted on the ZRC SAZU website and e-mailed to all employees in early January every year. The deadline for submitting the proposals is May 1st. As a rule, the editorial board selects one of the proposals by July 1st. ZRC SAZU covers the translation and printing costs, and the editorial board sees to the direct implementation (in cooperation with the author, the translator, and Peter Lang’s editor-in-chief).
If several high-quality proposals have been submitted and the authors can provide the relevant funds themselves, the editorial board can include more than one title in the series’ yearly program. Manuscripts that were already submitted as part of a previous call for proposals can be resubmitted at the editorial board’s invitation only.
