Sociological Futures Book Series

Sociological Futures is the BSA’s research monograph series and has published a wealth of titles on significant topics of sociological enquiry such as climate change, food, social mobility and sociological theory. We are interested in more proposals at any time and invite all scholars to get in touch with their book ideas.

All titles in the series are available from Routledge and also from Amazon as hardcover and ebook. Paperbacks will be published 12 months after initial publication. BSA members receive a discount on the purchase of these titles and can find discounts listed in the Members’ Area of the website.

Have an idea for a book?

The Sociological Futures book series is a flagship for new and innovative theories and approaches to 'the social' in the 21st century. We are interested in focused proposals for monographs and edited collections featuring contemporary work that is theoretically and methodologically innovative, has local and/or global reach, and engages or reengages with classic debates in sociology bringing new perspectives to important and relevant topics. We are looking for more titles and invite proposals to be a part of the series, including proposals covering topics such as:

  • race and ethnicity
  • climate change
  • work and employment
  • pandemics and health crisis
  • digital sociology
  • cities/urban sociology

The series offers a means to reach a wider audience and acts as an established publishing outlet for sociologists at all career and publishing stages, from the well-established to emerging sociologists from all parts of the world. The series appeals to students, offering a selection of key texts on a focussed topic in one place as well as being attractive to scholars looking for longer form research on classic and emerging sociological themes.

The Series Editors welcome suggestions for topics and book proposals at any time. We accept proposals for monographs and edited collections of approximately 70,000-80,000 words with a focused theme. Volumes are peer reviewed at both proposal and manuscript stage and have the support of the Series Editors, the BSA and Routledge.

We accept proposals at any time: there is no deadline.

Contact BSA Publications Manager, Alison Danforth, to discuss your proposal.
