Social Sciences

The De Gruyter social sciences lists have a strong partnership with European and US university presses and a long-established German-language publication program, ensuring our publications form a world-class, scholarly portfolio.

We are rapidly building up our global English-language publishing program in the broad social sciences with a focus mainly on politics, human geography, sociology and science and society (STS) areas. We are seeking proposals for books, book series, journals and reference and electronic publications.

Partnership with Bard College’s Hannah Arendt Center

Partnership with Bard College’s Hannah Arendt Center

In 2023, a partnership was established by De Gruyter and the Hannah Arendt Center for Politics and Humanities at Bard College, marked by the launch of the De Gruyter-Arendt Center Lecture in Political Thinking. Sponsored by De Gruyter, this annual lecture series invites preeminent thinkers to discuss pressing political and ethical issues of our day.

The inaugural lecture, titled “Arendt and the Problem of Political Persuasion,” was presented by Professor Linda Zerilli of The University of Chicago and served as the keynote address for a two-day interdisciplinary humanities conference.

The partnership represents an exciting development for the study of political theory and philosophy, with more projects in the works to facilitate research and offer an important forum for scholarly debates.
