The "global turn" can be defined as the globalization of social science, i.e. of the various disciplinary and inter-disciplinary appropriations of the concept of the global. These appropriations have transformed the scope, the lexicon, the methods of disciplines. Broader transnational processes impact on the social scientists’ craft. As this transformation is hardly ever taken into consideration per se, this new Series wants to make this issue its main foundation.

Specialists of adolescence and youth tend to consider these life stages as valuable barometers of social change. Indeed, new trends in society can be observed through the prism of young people who today find themselves under the spotlight as never before. At the same time, all over the planet, tremendous changes in everyday life can be witnessed currently.
The expression “popular culture” alludes, essentially, to a form of culture that makes little, if any, categorical distinctions between “high or serious culture” and “low or entertainment culture,” making it historically a non-traditional form of culture. In the evolution of human cultures, popular culture stands out as atypical, since it takes cultural material from any source and revamps it according to the laws of the marketplace.
International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology is a peer-reviewed series. Through the publication of original manuscripts and edited volumes, it explores the relationships between civil society, the state, and the structures and institutions spanning both. It does so at an historical time in which the processes of globalization increase the diversity, complexity and pluralism of contemporary societies, challenging social cohesion and fostering new forms of conflict.
"Open Philosophy" journal has started collecting manuscripts for the topical issue "Does Publih Art. Have to be Bad Art?" (ed. Mark Kingwell).
