This volume will appeal to the reader interested in the so-called "long crisis in the humanities" and transdisciplinary approaches as a possible way out of this. It comprises a selection of 23 essays by both established and young scholars from the United States, Slovenia, Croatia, and Serbia, coming from a variety of disciplines, including aesthetics, anthropology, architecture, art, critical theory, ethnography, feminism, film studies, gender and queer theory, literary theory, Marxism, musicology, philosophy, and sociology, among others. What brings all these together here is the intention to advance transdisciplinarity, both in theory and in practice, in their scholarly work, as a possible solution to this purported crisis, the subject of heated debate in academia since the 1960s, revolving around the "crisis of the subject" and the humanities' positioning as a field of research. The book examines the place of the humanities in contemporary society, and challenges the ways that issues that form the foci of various disciplines have been addressed in recent theoretical discourses. It reflects on the status of the disciplines in the humanities, and explores the links between history, culture, media, and art.
