This is a new English language book series from Mimesis International, which aims to host contemporary theoretical and empirical research within the field of sociology and social science. The series will host contributions from leading academics and emerging scholars, privileging multidisciplinary approaches which draw upon diverse sociological disciplines and social sciences. Assuming that the challenges of our time – i.e. climate change, the financial crisis, democracy and the media, social inequality, urbanisation, global healthcare, migration and ethnicity – never come organised by academic disciplines, this book series encourages interdisciplinary interaction among sociologists and social scientists. The large goal is to introduce knowledge of the social sciences into the broader public sphere. Covering a variety of sociological sub-disciplines, schools of thought, research methods, and topics, this series seeks to provide a critical intellectual space to address current public issues. It will also contribute to improving analytical capacities as well as cultivating a sense of global public responsibility.
The series includes two kinds of publications: monographs (authored by one or more authors) and contributed volumes (coordinated by one or more authors). Both these kinds of publications focus on specific topics and show critical openness to the academic debate, reviewing the state of art and presenting original research results.
An Editorial Board of internationally recognised scholars in the fields of sociology and social science will review and select submissions.
