Book series published by Malmö University Press

This book series address a significant set of issues that emerge from studying the human condition in various situations and contexts. Books in this series are grounded in ethnographic and/or phenomenological approaches in that they take a departure from lived experiences in the context of the everyday lifeworld.

The topics of the books may include qualitative studies in the social sciences (including psychology) and theoretical studies concerned with theory of science and research methodology.

Book series web page

The book-series follows and renews a critical-vitalist tradition in the human and social sciences. At the core of such scientific studies are the creative evolution of human and world, the irreducibility of educational life to mechanist or finalist explanations, and continuous critique of taken-for-granted ideas of what constitutes a ‘good’ life and childhood for children. The series welcomes contributions that adopt a critical-creative methodology in the study of past, present and future educational core-questions of importance for children’s lives within and outside formal educational contexts. Such questions may focus, but are not limited to, children’s meaning-making, peer-cultures, and citizenship in relation to contemporary cultural, environmental and political changes in society.

The aim of this series is to publish research, predominately within the humanities, about aesthetic/artistic culture and class. It has a special focus on research about working-class literature and literary representations of class.

The book series Lines of Flight presents imaginative work of explorative, transdisciplinary, and experimental character, in the intersections between social sciences, cultural studies, artistic research, and learning. We encourage hybrid pieces that can include visual, aural, textual, and performative ways of knowing. As indicated by our name, we welcome pieces with Deleuzian approaches, although it is not required.
