Mit der Globalisierung entstehen zunehmend komplexe Abhängigkeiten auch auf der kulturellen Ebene. Identitäten und Weltanschauungen verändern sich daher mit einer zunehmenden Dynamik, die nur mit Blick sowohl auf die lokale Tradition als auch die interkulturell-globale Dimension verstanden werden kann. Dies gilt insbesondere für Religionen und religiöse Phänomene. Die Reihe Global Religion | Religion global stellt sich dieser für die Moderne typischen reflexiven Verschränkung, indem sie durch eine kulturanalytische Perspektive geprägt ist, die Religionen, religiöse Phänomene und Weltanschauungen der heutigen Zeit in ihrer komplexen Verwobenheit reflektiert. Theologisch fundiert ist sie dadurch, dass (religiöse) Überzeugungen auch von innen heraus betrachtet und verstanden werden. Inhaltlich werden in der Reihe Studien und Sammelbände aufgenommen, die lokale Situationen in ihrer religiös-weltanschaulichen Prägung oder überregionale/globale religiöse Phänomene mit Bezug zur heutigen Situation bearbeiten. Damit soll ein Mosaik entstehen, das anhand einzelner Untersuchungen tiefgründig die heutige Welt in ihren aktuellen weltanschaulich-religiösen Dynamiken erfasst.

With globalization, increasingly complex interdependencies are also emerging at the cultural level. Identities and worldviews are therefore changing with increasing dynamism, which can only be understood with a view to both the local tradition and the intercultural-global dimension. This is especially true for religions and religious phenomena. The series Global Religion | Religion global confronts this reflexive entanglement, which is typical for modernity, by being characterized by a cultural-analytical perspective that reflects religions, religious phenomena, and worldviews of today in their complex interconnectedness. It is theologically grounded in that (religious) convictions are also viewed and understood from within. In terms of content, the series includes studies and anthologies that deal with local situations in their religious-ideological character or supra-regional/global religious phenomena with reference to today’s situation. In this way, a mosaic is to be created which, on the basis of individual studies, profoundly grasps today’s world in its current ideological-religious dynamics.
The overarching goal of the Series is to incorporate the history and culture of Roma into the mainstream of European and global academia. To achieve this goal, the series Roma History and Culture publishes books (monographs, edited volumes, and collections of historical sources) from wide range of disciplines – history, ethnography, anthropology, sociology, political science, religion, cultural studies, literature studies, film, and art history, with particular focus on comparative studies – that offer innovative, critical and, above all, reliable and fully documented insights into Roma history and culture that relies on documents, critical rereading and rethinking of historical sources and existing research. This approach marks a critical turn in the academic studies of Roma history and culture that in the past all too often were blighted by stereotypes and myths, especially the specious belief that there are not enough preserved written sources on the Roma past to allow for the emergence of Roma history as a field in its own right. The series thus, shifts and challenges prevailing academic narratives that Roma are nothing else but a detached, marginalised community and a passive object of different state governments’ policies by presenting, analysing and contextualising the agency of Roma as actors in their own right, with their own views and visions of the development for the Roma and their communities. In this way the volumes published in the Roma book series present and contribute to the incorporation of the Roma past and present into the mainstream of European and global historiography instead of confining Roma history and culture to some narrow ethnic box. Research work on the Roma from Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe constitutes the very academic focus of the proposed Book Series, which aspires to also cover the past and cultures of other communities that have historically been known under the general label “Gypsies”, such as the Sinti, Manush, Kale, Romanichals, Irish and Scottish Travelers, etc.
