Refractions

Series Editor(s): Kamini Vellodi

Intellectually adventurous scholarship at the borders of art history and philosophy

Poised at the borders of art history and philosophy, Refractions offers a space to bring together thought on the arts stemming from the continental tradition, debates on contemporary art and the visual and non-western philosophies and comparative studies of art and image.

Deflections of light or waves across media of different densities, refractions are passages that fracture whilst continuing. The series will capture the atmosphere of this phenomena, forging resonances and oblique intersections between diverse zones of thought, while fostering breakaway strands of thinking.

Series mission

  • Supports a range of perspectives including art theory, art criticism, philology, cultural anthropology, aesthetics and art historiography, race and gender studies
  • Combines thought on the arts stemming from the continental tradition with non-western philosophies and comparative studies of art and image
  • Translates pioneering texts on philosophy of art and art history in Europe, America and further afield

Write for Refractions

We invite proposals for intellectually adventurous work across borders of chronology and geography, and which engage the theorisation of art as a persistent provocation for our times. Refractions publishes a range of writing styles and formats that engage with the series topic, including short books and collections of essays, monographs and edited collections.

To submit your proposal or discuss a potential idea, email the series editor Kamini Vellodi: k.vellodi@ed.ac.uk
