This 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519), the universal genius, the twofold engineer of defense walls against the enemy as much as swing-bridges for overtaking them; of impenetrable dams for stopping natural waterways as much as artificial water-channels for the penetration of commerce and the mixing of peoples and cultures; of barricades for puzzling the enemy on the ground as much as flying machines and futuristic prototypes of inspection drones, anticipating our transcontinental connections.

The German Green Party's Second Generation - a collective biography (In German: Die zweite Generation der Grünen – Ein Gruppenporträt)
Academica Press, a leading independent non-fiction publisher, is proud to call for manuscripts from dynamic scholars at all levels seeking to publish cutting edge work that challenges traditional disciplinary boundaries and provocatively revisits conventional topics. New publications will ideally be devoted to eclectic and under-explored issues and make imaginative uses of theory and method.
The workshop will explore the wealth of manuscripts dedicated to presenting genealogical information across cultures. It is interested in all forms of written artefacts that have been produced to present and clarify kinship relations.
