The biannual and peer-reviewed journal Global Humanities: Studies in Histories, Cultures, and Societies has been developed to discuss topics of a global and transnational range from an interdisciplinary perspective, providing a forum for like-minded scholars to present their recent research. The aim of the journal is to discuss historical, cultural, social, and economic topics from a wider and more global perspective and, thus, to underline the deeper meanings and reasons for global processes, which have become increasingly dominating in our world. The analysis of the relationship between 'center and periphery' is one of many theoretical approaches found in all fields of the Humanities, and is therefore a suitable topic for this initial book form issue of the journal. Looking at this special relationship from several disciplinary perspectives is an effective methodology for establishing connections between various fields of study. Consequently, this issue contains articles dealing with literature, movies, and other research approaches of the Humanities. The historical perspective of cultural reception, the economic relationship between central and peripheral areas, as well as the development of stereotypes as a consequence of the exchange between both areas are also part of the discussion. This volume will therefore provide a broad outlook on the periphery-center relationship, giving the reader an insight into the different working fields of several disciplines within the Humanities. Furthermore, it can be considered an argument for strengthening interdisciplinary work in the future, highlighting the interconnectedness of history, literature, art, politics, and many other disciplines.
