Sociology of Race and Ethnicity

Sociology of Race and Ethnicity provides a venue for international, pioneering scholarship that moves our understanding of race, racism, ethnicity, and ethnic oppression forward. The series will develop books that engage in contemporary social issues in a meaningful way, advocating intervention and action in social justice and social transformation.

While theoretically and empirically grounded in sociology, books in this series will intersect a wide array of social sciences (geography, history, political science, anthropology, philosophy). Aimed at both academics and practitioners through thought-provoking and teachable manuscripts, we are particularly interested in “engaged scholarship.” We also encourage theoretical perspectives (and methods and methodologies) that have historically been marginalized, but which are intellectually engaged, rigorous, and critical. Such perspectives include, but are not limited to: Du Boisian analysis, Critical Race Theory, Afro-Centrist/Futurist, Latinx Critical Theory, as well as Critical Raced-Gendered and other intersectional epistemologies.

We seek book proposals that accomplish the dual goals of speaking to the public square and pushing the intellectual conversation forward.
