gloknos invites you to join us to celebrate the launch of the Global Epistemics book series established with publisher Rowman & Littlefield International, and the forthcoming publication of the first volume on Imaginaries of Connectivity.

The Global Epistemics book series is an important milestone for the ARTEFACT project, one of whose objectives is to develop interdisciplinary research on global knowledge studies. As gloknos‘s core academic dissemination arm, the series will foster, support, and promote empirically grounded and theoretically ambitious work that draws on advances across disciplines and speaks to audiences across and beyond disciplinary boundaries.

This event will feature a collective discussion on Knowledge Beyond Discipline with members of the series’ International Editorial Board, who will join gloknos‘s director and series founding editor Inanna Hamati-Ataya to reflect on the promises and challenges of transdisciplinary knowledge and research in the 21st century.

About the Series

Global Epistemics is a transdisciplinary series established in partnership with Rowman & Littlefield International, that aims to foster, promote, and disseminate empirically grounded and theoretically ambitious research on knowledge as a cultural and natural phenomenon. It was founded and will be edited by gloknos’s Founding Director Inanna Hamati-Ataya, with RLI’s Isobel Cowper-Coles as its Commissioning Editor.

The Global Epistemics series is part of gloknos’s wider transdisciplinary mission and is organically integrated into the Centre’s research and dissemination structure. Work published in the series will benefit from gloknos’s other existing and forthcoming dissemination channels, but the editor also aims to initiate, foster, and support collective transdisciplinary projects at the earliest stages of their formulation well in advance of the writing and publication phase, by facilitating whenever possible the organisation of workshops at different stages of the research and writing process. The point is to enable the constitution of genuinely transdisciplinary scholarship that organically grows out of cross-fertilising conversations and adds up to more than the sum of its (disciplinary) parts.

The series will be integrated into gloknos‘s research and dissemination structures, and will be managed by gloknos‘s core research team with the guidance of a substantial and multidisciplinary Editorial Review Board including world-leading experts in their academic fields and in the global organisation and circulation of knowledge.

Full information on the series, editorial team, and submission process can be found on our and on RLI’s websites.
