    Mission and Scope Statement

    Human Affairs: Postdisciplinary Humanities & Social Sciences Quarterly (founded in 1990 as Human Affairs) is an international journal for humanities and social sciences published in English by the Slovak Academy of Sciences, Slovakia. It aims to bring together contributions from all traditional and non-traditional fields of humanities and social sciences which relate to crucial contemporary human affairs. The underlying editorial strategy is to advance human self-understanding and communication via publishing innovative theoretical, interpretative, critical and historical contributions transcending traditional disciplinary and cultural frontiers. By publishing primarily, though not exclusively, original and theoretical articles, empirical studies and their interpretations, reviews and notes of domestic authors, Human Affairs: Postdisciplinary Humanities & Social Sciences Quarterly serves the mission of fostering multicultural and international conversation concerning the whole range of human and social issues.
