Common Ground's Humanities journals provide a space for dialogue and publication of new knowledge which builds on the past traditions of the humanities whilst setting a renewed agenda for their future. The humanities are a domain of learning, reflection and action, and a place of dialogue between and across epistemologies, perspectives and content areas. It is in these unsettling places that the humanities might be able to unburden modern knowledge systems of their restrictive narrowness. Discussions in the New Directions in the Humanities Collection range from the broad and speculative to the microcosmic and empirical. Their over-riding concern, however, is to redefine our understandings of the human and mount a case for the disciplinary practices of the humanities. At a time when the dominant rationalisms are running a course that often seem to draw humanity towards less than satisfactory ends, these journals reopen the question of the human—for highly pragmatic as well as redemptory reasons. The New Directions in the Humanities Collection is relevant for academics across the whole range of humanities disciplines, research students, educators—school, university and further education—anyone with an interest in, and concern for the humanities. All the journals in the New Directions in the Humanities Collection are peer-reviewed, supported by rigorous processes of criterion-referenced article ranking and qualitative commentary, ensuring that only intellectual work of the greatest substance and highest significance is published.
