Routledge Advances in Critical Diversities


About the Series

Advances in Critical Diversities provides an exciting new publishing space to critically consider practices, meanings and understandings of "diversity," inequality and identity across time and place. The book series will have a particular focus on developing an extended conceptualization of diversity and division which incorporates dimensions of political, social, economic and cultural, as well as the bodily and intimate, to consider how diversity is lived-in, inhabited, mobilised and refused.
