Publications in Stockholm University Press
The Department of Culture and Aesthetics has three book series within Stockholm University Press:
- Basic Readings in Culture and Aesthetics
- Critical Editions in Culture and Aesthetics
- Stockholm Studies in Culture and Aesthetics
Basic Readings in Culture and Aesthetics
Basic Readings in Culture and Aesthetics (BaRCA) (ISSN 2002-6463) is a peer-reviewed series of monographs and edited volumes published by Stockholm University Press. BaRCA provides a publishing platform for academic textbooks built on high-quality research mainly within the disciplines of Art History, Heritage Studies, Curating Art, History of Ideas, Literary Studies, Musicology, and Performance and Dance Studies. It is the ambition of BaRCA to place equally high demands on the academic quality of the manuscripts it accepts as those applied by international academic publishers of a similar orientation. BaRCA accepts manuscripts in English and Swedish.
Critical Editions in Culture and Aesthetics
Critical Editions in Culture and Aesthetics (CEiCA) (ISSN XXXX-XXXX) is a peer-reviewed series of scholarly editions of source texts published by Stockholm University Press. CEiCA aims to provide a publishing forum for translated, annotated, and introduced texts within the broad domain of culture and aesthetics, including, but not limited to, the disciplines of Art History, Heritage Studies, Curating Art, History of Ideas, Literary Studies, Musicology, and Performance and Dance Studies.
The ambition of CEiCA includes both to provide open access to manuscripts and out of print texts, and to introduce them with a contextualizing and critical apparatus. The series thus promotes the values of 1) making source texts available through digital means of access, and 2) recognizing critical editing as a scholarly achievement in its own right. English translations that make Swedish texts accessible to international scholarly communities are encouraged.
As the CEiCA publications are required to be the products of scholarly achievements, the series does not include facsimiles, reprints, or other editions without a critical apparatus that contextualizes, explains, problematizes, and evaluates the source texts through introductions, annotations, footnotes, further references, bibliography, indexing, etc.
Stockholm Studies in Culture and Aesthetics
Stockholm Studies in Culture and Aesthetics (SiCA) (ISSN 2002-3227) is a peer-reviewed series of monographs and edited volumes published by Stockholm University Press. SiCA strives to provide a broad forum for research on culture and aesthetics, including the disciplines of Art History, Heritage Studies, Curating Art, History of Ideas, Literary Studies, Musicology, and Performance and Dance Studies. In terms of subjects and methods, the orientation is wide: critical theory, cultural studies and historiography, modernism and modernity, materiality and mediality, performativity and visual culture, children’s literature and children’s theatre, queer and gender studies.
It is the ambition of SiCA to place equally high demands on the academic quality of the manuscripts it accepts as those applied by refereed international journals and academic publishers of a similar orientation. SiCA accepts manuscripts in English, Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian.
Studies in Curating Art
The book series “Studies in Curating Art” has been published annually since 2014. “Studies in Curating Art” focuses on curatorial research and on the connections between curatorial theory and practice, within the frame of the International Master’s program in Curating Art at Stockholm University.
Each issue of the annual publication is self-run by the students enrolled in the Publication Elective Course within the frame of the international Master’s program in Curating Art.
It is edited around a selected theme and, since 2018, has been realized in collaboration with graphic designers and institutions for education and graphic design. Click on the headlines below to read about each of the issues that have been published by the book series.
