APSA 2020 Virtual Book Exhibit -- History

Temple University Press offers a well-established list in the politics of social change as well as several exciting, cutting-edge new book series. Editor-in-Chief Aaron Javsicas seeks proposals for new projects in a number of areas including African American politics, women and politics, urban politics, environmental politics and policy, and religion and politics.  

The Press is especially excited to announce our new book series Intersectionality, edited by Julia Jordan-Zachery, Celeste Montoya, and Anna Sampaio. This series will publish timely and dynamic new research on intersectional politics in the social sciences, drawing from its complex origins in articulations of identity and power as well as applications of intersectionality as methodology and as an analytical tool.

Keneshia Grant's The Great Migration and the Democratic Party will be the focus of an Author Meets Critics session at the American Political Science Association annual/virtual meeting. Sept 11 @ 12-1:30PM ET.  Dr. Grant will also take part in a session "New Insights on Black Politics: A Conversation with Book Authors on the 'Back Bone' of the Democratic Party" on September 13th from 4-5:30pm ET.

If you would like to schedule a time to discuss your book proposal, please contact Aaron Javsicas.
