Sociology of Diversity

Series Editor: David G. Embrick, Associate Professor in Sociology and Africana Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut, US.

International Editorial Advisory Board

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 Bristol University 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.

Beer and Racism

How Beer Became White, Why It Matters, and the Movements to Change It

Beer in the United States has always been bound up with race, racism, and the construction of white institutions and identities. This unique book carves a much-needed critical and interdisciplinary path to examine and understand the racial dynamics in the craft beer industry and the popular consumption of beer.

The Death of Affirmative Action?

Racialized Framing and the Fight Against Racial Preference in College Admissions

Can affirmative action in US college admissions survive mounting threats? This judicious review, part of the Sociology of Diversity series, considers the question using up-to-date sociological, policy and legal perspectives to explain both sides of the fierce debate over affirmative action in the context of prominent Supreme Court cases.
