The series ZMO Programmatic Texts publishes wider conceptual articles engaging with the interdisciplinary and inter-regional research conducted at ZMO. The series provides a platform for authors to present and discuss innovative contributions to current theoretical and comparative debates, in relation to ZMO’s programmatic research agenda. They are subjected to a peer-review process and published online on the ZMO website. We are very interested in academic comments on the discussed topics to support a continuous scholarly exchange. We invite you to send your comments to the authors to be published here.
