Contemporary European Studies (Russian-Language)

Book series under the imprint of Academic Studies Press (Boston, US) and Bibliorossica (St. Petersburg, Russia)

Academic Studies Press is pleased to announce the launch of the new Russian-language series Contemporary European Studies. This series features outstanding scholarly monographs in the field of European studies, with a particular focus on European intellectual history, sociology, culture, art, and urban studies. Volumes in Contemporary European Studies are written by leading American and European scholars and presented in Russian translation for the first time. The series’ mission is to promote the understanding of Europe as a whole and its many nations and cultures individually among the Russophone readership. Due to language constraints, many Russian-speaking readers are only exposed to the most recent and highly publicized foreign-language scholarship available in Russian translation. ASP aims to broaden the availability of content by translating and publishing the most innovative and perennial titles, thus promoting international scholarly excellence to bridge the divide between Russian and foreign-speaking scholars.

Contemporary European Studies builds upon ASP’s existing expertise in curating, translating, and publishing translations successfully demonstrated by titles published in our Contemporary Western Rusistika series. Titles in Contemporary European Studies are available in both quality print and digital formats with active promotion and distribution aimed at Russian-speaking readers across Russia, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and beyond.

Contemporary European Studies features several sub-series devoted to subject areas such as, but not limited to, modernism and avant-garde art, European music heritage of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and metahistory and the dissemination of scholarly knowledge in early modern Europe. Titles will be of interest to both the academic and the general reader, with scholarly research and in-depth analysis of sources presented in an engaging and accessible manner.

«БиблиоРоссика» представляет новую переводную серию «Современная европеистика», выпускающуюся издательством в партнерстве с американским издательством «Academic Studies Press». Серия посвящена интеллектуальной истории, политике, социологии, культуре, искусству и урбанистике европейского региона и отдельных его стран. Миссия проекта — познакомить читателя со взглядом современных западных (европейских и американских) ученых на исторические процессы и культурное наследие региона, игравшего ключевую роль в развитии человеческой цивилизации на протяжении многих веков. Также в рамках серии будет рассматриваться национальная проблематика отдельных европейских государств, многие из которых имеют тесные исторические и культурные связи с Россией. «Современная европеистика» призвана пролить свет на то, что делало и продолжает делать — несмотря на нарастающую разобщенность и обостряющиеся противоречия — Европу единым регионом, и помочь расширить диалог культур через современные исследования, новые подходы и исторические перспективы.

В рамках общей серии планируется выход нескольких подсерий, посвященных таким темам как модернизм и авангардное искусство, переплетения политики и драматургии в XX веке, музыка европейского Средневековья и Ренессанса как источник исторической памяти, метаистория и распространение научных знаний и информации в Европе, а также многим другим. Представленные в серии монографии публикуются на русском языке впервые и сочетают по-научному глубокую проработку вопросов и анализ источников с доступным стилем изложения и актуальностью тем, что свойственно качественной литературе в жанре нон-фикшн.

Проект «Современная европеистика» опирается на накопленный опыт издания других серий «БиблиоРоссики» и, в первую очередь, — также выпускающейся под двойным импринтом серии «Современная западная русистика». Книги новой серии отличает то же высокое качество издания, которое уже хорошо известно русскоязычному читателю.
