General Editor: Han van Ruler, Erasmus University Rotterdam BSIH includes two subseries, Brill's Texts and Sources in Intellectual History (BTSI) and Brill’s Studies on Art, Art History, and Intellectual History (BSAI).

One of my teaching duties during my Fulbright year is to teach two weeks of “Philosophy of Science II: American Studies as Meta-Science.” This course is the second part of method/theory sequence required by all American Studies undergraduate majors.
Each member of the American Studies faculty teaches two weeks of the course, on topics that speak to their expertise.
