About Ashgate's Sociology List

At Ashgate we are committed to publishing the highest quality academic research and this means willingness to consider proposals in a variety of areas, ensuring that innovative work and cutting edge methodologies appear alongside outstanding work based upon more well-established ethnographic methods.

While the continuing importance of social theory to our publishing is reflected in our having established the series Classical and Contemporary Social Theory, the sociology list remains strong in its publication of titles connected with migration and ethnic relations, with three series devoted to these areas: Studies in Migration and Diaspora, Research in Migration and Ethnic Relations and Interdisciplinary Research Series in Ethnic, Gender and Class Relations. At the same time, our series The Cultural Politics of Media and Popular Culture and Interactionist Currents demonstrate the continued growth of our publishing in the fields of popular culture, cultural and media studies, and research methods.

Of course, we welcome proposals in all of these areas and more, but we also seek to maintain the broad range of fields in which we publish, so as to ensure that our list reflects current, cutting edge scholarship and developments in sociological research. As such, we are very pleased to see the growth of our publishing in the fields of both globalisation (within our series Global Connections) and contemporary social movements (in our series Mobilization).

Perhaps the best way to gain an understanding of the areas in which we currently publish and the directions of our list, is to simply browse the Sociology and Series pages.
