This series will bring together the highest quality sociological and interdisciplinary research specific to ethnic, racial, gender and sexualities diversity.  There are two specific objectives: first, to publish highly visible, cutting-edge research with respect to sociology, or an interdisciplinary approach that is partially grounded in sociology, of diversity and inclusion; and second, to specifically engage in research that offers a broader perspective to the topics of diversity and inclusion.

Currently, diversity as a concept tends to be non-critical and excessively broad in interpretation. In contrast, this new Policy Press international monograph series will be specific in scope to empirical and theoretical research that engages in a critical examination and analysis of diversity, inclusion, and equity. As such, this series is particularly interested in sociological and interdisciplinary scholarship that offer new empirical, theoretical, or epistemological insights on ethnic, racial, gender, and/or sexualities diversity.

Topics may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Affirmative action
  • Multiculturalism
  • Diversity and emotions
  • Immigration and diversity
  • Diversity in the military
  • Inclusion and equity
  • Diversity in the workplace
  • Media representations
