"Trans-Humanities Research Book Series" is planned to make a place to organize and extend the scope of trans-humanities by gathering research results not only by EIH Trans-Humanities Research Team but also by various researchers who share the awareness on humanities. The EIH has also translated and introduced foreign books which are carried out an in-depth study of trans-humanities. With these series, the EIH not only reinterprets the traditional humanistic themes with an interdisciplinary approach, but also interprets trans-boundary cultural phenomena in the 21st century as well as making a open-discussion forum for criticizing the power, an obstacle for the formation and dissolution of boundaries. With these efforts, the EIH hopes to contribute to constructing a new humanistic paradigm meeting the needs of the times.
