New Book Series to Feature Cross-Cultural Philosophy


The editors of a new book series from Oxford University Press (OUP) that will publish works that “exhibit conversation between traditions or cultural sources not often engaged together” are seeking submissions of proposals.

The series is called Philosophy Across Borders. Its editors are Kristi Dotson (Michigan), Bronwyn Finnigan (ANU), Jonardon Ganeri (Toronto), Amy Olberding (Oklahoma), and Evan Thompson (UBC).

Professor Olberding writes:

Oxford University Press is seeking submissions of proposals for a new series: Philosophy Across Borders. OUP is committed to publishing high quality philosophical work that draws on broad sourcing to create novel philosophy or novel approaches to recognized problems, methodologies, or approaches. The hope is that books in the series will exhibit conversation between traditions or cultural sources not often engaged together. This might include, e.g., engagement between underrepresented traditions and more widely studied western sources, but it could also include work that engages multiple underrepresented traditions not often engaged together. The goal is not to re-create comparative philosophy, but to provide accessible philosophical work that simply does philosophy in an idiom that is open and global.

If you have a proposal for the series, she adds, you should contact any of the series editors or the OUP editor, Peter Ohlin.

Just a reminder to colleagues, friends, and authors who are interested in world philosophy that you have choices. Columbia University Press has been publishing comparative, cross-cultural, and now world philosophy for several decades, as have other prestigious academic presses. It’s always a good idea to find out which of them most aligns with your work. One tip, seemingly obvious but surprising how few people do it, is to check your own library–the presses that publish the books closest to your interests might also be good presses for your own work.Report
