Sociological Futures is a BSA-Routledge book series for monographs and edited collections.

This peer reviewed book series is inspired by the vibrant wealth of BSA events and presentations.  It aims to enable the fruits of these events to reach a wider audience and offers a new publishing outlet for sociologists at all career and publishing stages, from the well-established to emerging sociologists, BSA or non-BSA members, from all parts of the world.

Sociological Futures is interested in focused proposals for monographs and edited collections that feature contemporary work that is theoretically and methodologically innovative, has local or global reach, as well as work that engages or reengages with classic debates in sociology bringing new perspectives to important and relevant topics.

Edited by a team of experienced researchers, Sociological Futures aims to be a flagship for new and innovative theories and approaches to ‘the social’ in the 21st century.
