Cultural Identity Studies

Cultural Identity StudiesThis series aims to publish new research (monographs and essays) into relationships and interactions between culture and identity. The notions of both culture and identity are broadly conceived; interdisciplinary and theoretically diverse approaches are encouraged in a series designed to promote a better understanding of the processes of identity formation, both individual and collective. It will embrace research into the roles of linguistic, social, political, psychological, and religious factors, taking account of historical context. Work on the theorizing of cultural aspects of identity formation, together with case studies of individual writers, thinkers or cultural products will be included. It focuses primarily on cultures linked to European languages, but welcomes trans-cultural links and comparisons. It is published in association with the Cultural Identity Studies Institute of the University of St Andrews.

Pamela Sue Anderson, Fellow in Philosophy and Christian Ethics, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford

What, in the inheritance of 2000 years, can carry us forward into the increasingly shared time and space of our fast-globalizing world? How, in the third millennium, should we think of the Common Era?

2000 Years and Beyond brings together some of the most eminent thinkers of our time, specialists in philosophy, theology, anthropology and cultural theory. In a horizon-scanning work, they look backwards and forwards to explore what links us to the matrix of the Judaeo-Christian tradition from which Western cultural identity has evolved.
