The goal of the Limes series is to present important interdisciplinary trends in literary theory and cultural studies of Western culture of the last half century to the broader professional community (espectially teachers, students and researchers in the humanities). The LIMES name highlights the dominant issue of the boundaries between disciplines, which determines the current transformation of the humanities and its development as an interdisciplinary subject. The individual crossings of these borders are not in themselves important, but rather the methods and approaches that lead to a change of perspective in which cultural phenomena are viewed, examined and explained.
