The New Black Studies Series


Acquiring Editor: Dawn Durante
Series Editors: Darlene Clark Hine and Dwight A. McBride

The New Black Studies Series publishes the best scholarship that extends the boundaries of traditional Black studies and innovatively advances the field. Methodologically and disciplinarily diverse, The New Black Studies Series seeks books that theoretically, comparatively, historically, or culturally expand our notions of racial blackness and provide generative ways to examine and understand the function and impact of race. Projects in the series tackle aspects of the intersectional complexities of African American and African diasporic lives that help us to rethink class, gender, sexuality, racial blackness, and white supremacy. Topics of interest include the African American art and cultural movements, the history and culture of Black women, Black studies theory, activism, and diasporic trajectories. Authors interested in publishing in the series should be able to articulate how their book creates new rubrics for Black studies scholarship that thinks against the ossified traditional limits and understandings of race and blackness.
