Critical Approaches to Southeast Europe: A Cross-Disciplinary Series

Series Editors:
Eric Gordy, University College London
Věra Stojarová, Masaryk University
Dejan Jović, University of Zagreb

This new series aims to catalyze and showcase social research that is built on engagement and
interaction at the ground level in Southeast Europe. It will provide a space for the publication of interdisciplinary work, and for social science research based on fieldwork. The series will take a comparative and critical approach, and will look at how Southeast Europe is viewed by others and how researchers from Southeast Europe see their region compared to others. It will also take an “insideoutside” perspective, addressing issues such as knowledge production about Southeast Europe; center-periphery relations; the position of the region in the globalized international system; and the memory of empire.

• To encourage and increase the methodological and theoretical diversity of the study of South-East Europe
• To encourage interdisciplinary and comparative approach in studying the region
• To promote the visibility of early career scholars, scholars from the region, and scholars elaborating the perspectives of underrepresented groups
