Contemporary Perspectives on Social Inequalities in the United States

The presence of social inequities, lack of fairness, and prolonged cruel treatment have a broad and deep existence in society. While some improvements in prejudice, discrimination, and hatred have occurred over time, the current and historical dimensions of these issues continue to plague us, even now. This series focuses on varying topics which cut across economic, ideological, political, and social problems in the contemporary United States. We invite scholars to submit manuscripts on topics such as: race/class/gender/sexuality inequalities, inequality in education, health care inequalities, age discrimination, family systems, housing and homelessness, food disparities, environmental inequalities, and other future topics with social inequality in the United States as the focus. Although the series is open to these topics, this is not a finite list of possibilities. Scholars who can address these problems based on quantitative, qualitative, mixed-methods, and novel approaches are welcome to contribute. Successful proposals will be accessible to a multidisciplinary audience, and advance our understanding of broadly defined social inequality, its development, and its repercussions for our future.
