Serai is an interdisciplinary place of exchange for scholars and others seeking to explore inter-cultural, -linguistic and -religious relations in the early modern period. We welcome those studying within and at the intersections of history, literature, visual culture, ethnography, architecture, translation studies, sexuality studies, post-colonial studies, and globalism, among other fields. Such transnational and trans-disciplinary perspectives will be the impetus of our quarterly blogs, photo essays, and spotlighted archival documents. We also seek to increase interdisciplinary awareness and participation by serving as a central site for the posting of CFPs, new publications and other announcements relevant to this broadly conceived field of study.
