Spaces and Practices of Justice series

Series Editor: Agatha Herman, Cardiff University

This book series focuses on the intersections between spaces and practices to provide innovative and important interventions on examples of real-world (in)justice.

The geographies of justice are a vibrant and growing area of academic research, which investigates the spatialities of (in)justice and its impacts on practices, relations, discourses and experiences.  This book series explores and analyses the exciting nexus offered by a focus on (in)justice for interdisciplinary work and so draws on engagements from across sociology, politics, international relations, urban studies, anthropology, rural studies, cultural studies, criminology, development studies and human geography. 

Given the widespread relevance of justice issues, through this book series we aim to communicate original research and thought-provoking reflective commentary to a wide audience.  We will therefore bring together established and early career academics to publish original research providing critical and incisive reflection on contemporary issues. Publications might explore food justice, scholar-activism, social movements, gender, sexuality, race, childhood, labour, trade, domestic spaces, environmental relations and consumption to open out different approaches to questions of justice grounded within everyday experiences and spaces.

While we acknowledge that most accounts of justice start with the more readily understandable experiences of injustice the series aims to take a more hopeful sense of the possibilities of justice research through focusing on the spaces and practices through which the ideals of justice - which we position as fairness, equity and equality - are articulated and performed. 

The scope of the series will be global, and truly diverse in the range of authors and topics.  We will actively pursue researchers undertaking interesting and innovative work across the spectrum of disciplines that engage with the spatialities of justice.
