Geographies of Justice and Social Transformation

Geographies of Justice and Social Transformation is devoted to books that engage the importance of space for questions of social and political change. This focus necessarily covers a broad range of subject matter, including international political economy, urban studies, gender, race, sexuality, and poverty and inequality. While the series is interdisciplinary, its primary emphasis is on critical human geography.

Books published in the series are designed to inform both intellectuals of broad stripes and those engaged in political processes of different kinds, from policy makers to grassroots activists. The series editors are interested in producing books that live on in academic offices and classrooms around the world, but also take on life in political chambers, organizing halls, and the streets where both space and politics are produced.

Mathew Coleman is an associate professor at the Department of Geography, Ohio State University

Sapana Doshi is an assistant professor at the School of Geography and Development and a Faculty Affiliate in the Department of Gender and Women's Studies at the University of Arizona.

Nik Heynen is a professor of geography at the University of Georgia.
