Similar in its aim to the manifesto, the pamphlet, or the essay, the Provocations series takes a strong stand on contemporary debates and issues within the humanities. Rather than address a specific problem within a particular field, this series establishes a forum for the kind of cross-disciplinary theoretical experimentation that is the very essence of cutting-edge work in the humanities.
This series offers ambitious, polemical texts that exist outside the traditional formats of academic discourse (longer than an academic article and shorter than a monograph), and will concentrate on the broad philosophical and theoretical subjects involving the humanities. Seeking to fill a hole in the current publication market for the field of the theoretical humanities, books in the series will take a strong stand on a contemporary debate or issue within the humanities and propose a clearly formulated (even if controversial) intervention.
