Indiana Featured Series

Framing the Global

Acquisitions Editor: Jennika Baines

The Framing the Global series seeks to publish innovative work on the relationship between content and structure, the individual and the universal, and the local and the global in the field of Global Studies. The series develops innovative approaches to explain global phenomena and provides means of tracing and and exploring the transnational links which are too often left out of Global Studies. 

Studies in Antisemitism

Editor: Alvin H. Rosenfeld

Responding to a global upsurge in antisemitic rhetoric and actions in recent decades, the Studies in Antisemitism series focuses on the intellectual and ideological roots of what has been called the new antisemitism and seek to elucidate the social, cultural, religious, and political forces that nurture such hostility. The volumes in the series will aim to clarify what is new and what has been inherited from the antisemitic lexicons of the past.
