Sociology of Diversity

Series Editor: David G. Embrick, Associate Professor in Sociology and Africana Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut; and Director of Research on Resilient Cities, Racism and Equity at UConn’s Hartford campus.

This fast-growing series brings together the highest quality sociological and interdisciplinary research that critically engages with the broad topic of diversity and inclusion, including, but not limited to topics that cover racism, ethnic oppression, gender, sexuality(ies), class and immigration.

Diversity and inclusion have become ubiquitous terms. While globally we have seen a rise in political and social attacks on diversity, mostly through an anti-woke/anti-Critical Race Theory (CRT) movement, many scholars have criticized the use of diversity and inclusion in non-critical ways. Thus, this international series is specific in scope to empirical and theoretical research that engages in a critical examination and analysis of diversity, inclusion and equity. As such, it is particularly interested in sociological and interdisciplinary scholarship that offers new empirical, theoretical, or epistemological insights that interrogate how the language of diversity has been used to hide, minimize, or deflect real issues of inequality in society.
