Culture on the Edge is comprised of a core collaborative research group and its invited guests. Together they interrogate the contradiction between the historicity of identity, which is always fluid over place and time, and common scholarly assertions of a static and ahistorical origin for an identity community (whether religious, national, ethnic, etc.) against which cultural change can be measured. The collaborative has a book series with Equinox Publishers.

Eliade’self by…himself :
“My capacity for understanding and feeling culture, in all its forms, is unlimited. If only I were able to express even a hundredth part of all I think and know differently from the way others know it! I don’t believe I’ve ever met a genius of such complexity – in any case, my intellectual horizons are broader than those of Goethe” (The Portugal Journal, transl. M. L. Ricketts, SUNY Press, 2010, p. 15).
Humility was not part of that complexity, apparently.
