Publishing with a purpose

Meet our Sociology Editors: Shannon Kneis and Victoria Pittman

Our growing Sociology list has a global outlook featuring high-quality research across emerging and established areas in the field, such as digital sociology, migration, gender, race and ethnicity, public sociology and children and families.

As we explore the impact of the pandemic on individuals and societies - particularly on the global challenges of democracy, the environment, inequalities and intersectionality - we'd be very interested to talk to you about your work and ideas.
