Diverse Voices

Series Editors: Se-shauna Wheatle, Durham University and Jonathan Herring, University of Oxford

As law faculties, academics and students increasingly realise that their reading lists are dominated by white, male and heteronormative perspectives, the Diverse Voices series gives students an opportunity to engage with voices that have so often been silenced - the voices of black and minority ethnic, women, disabled, LGBTQI, working class and neuro-atypical people.

Diverse Voices presents a ground-breaking platform for critiquing the law from the perspective of minoritized and marginalized groups and debating and understanding the impact of the law on these different groups. Each book brings together an inclusive group of authors to explore a range of underexplored perspectives on the law and amplify voices that remain underrepresented in the field.

This inclusive series of textbooks:

• provides students with materials from an unprecedentedly diverse range of perspectives on core areas of legal study;
• introduces them to insights that are not often available in mainstream analysis;
• and better equips them to engage with the range of people and issues they will encounter in the world of work.

Showing how diversification can enrich, embolden and energise the study of law, these books offer law academics and students a unique insight into the voices and perspectives which have too long been ignored by too many.
