>At least from the beginning of the twentieth century, artists and scholars
>have created critical investigations presented in aesthetic terms through
>word and image. Neither conventional academic text nor traditional work of
>art, this hybrid research produces knowledge by combining rigorous analysis
>with affective visual and written language. Such material appeals to the
>mind and the senses, and operates on the premise that learning occurs most
>powerfully when intellectual study incorporates noumenal and phenomenal
>experience. Important examples of aesthetic critical inquiry include:
>illustrated essays in Surrealist periodicals; Conceptual art that
>interrogates theory; poetically written and creatively designed cultural
>criticism; and digital projects that deliver information and ideas through
>artful web design.
>
>This series provides a forum for aesthetic critical inquiry through the
>printed and digital book format and aims to defy developing categories for
>interdisciplinary research. Interdisciplinarity is currently understood in
>terms of hybrid subjects and/or methods within academic scholarship.
>Aesthetic critical inquiry bridges academic scholarship and artistic
>creation, and thereby fundamentally questions not only what we know, but
>also how we know it. Because of this emphasis on interdisciplinarity, the
>series will highlight collaborative endeavors between writers and artists.
>
>The series will publish books and digital projects that explore and
>reconfigure the following subjects:
>
>Activism
>Culture
>Epistemology
>Hermeneutics
>Histories
>Politics
>Religions
>Sciences
>Societies
>Technologies

>also send the c.v. of the author or editor.
