Race, Representation, and American Political Institutions
Race, Representation, and American Political Institutions is an interdisciplinary series which examines how race and racial inequality shape the electoral and non-electoral behavior and attitudes of Black/African Americans and others categorized/ascribed/self-identified as ‘black’ in the United States, as well as their sociopolitical circumstances relative to other groups. The series specifically seeks to publish work investigating how racialized people of African descent engage with U.S. institutions to represent their political interests to elected and appointed officials at the federal, regional, state, and local level (e.g., through elections, campaigns, parties, interest groups, coalitions, lawsuits, civil disobedience, legislative proposals, candidate donations). The series includes works that investigate support for black candidates and for policies advocated by black leaders and minority communities; the dynamics of racial identity politics in the 21st century; how the intersections of race and other social identities configure engagement; and the relationship between election administration, judicial rulings about election-related discrimination, and the political activities of black Americans. Work that advances knowledge about the import of race to conceptualizations of democratic citizenship and democratic practice are of particular interest. We welcome well-researched scholarly monographs and edited volumes employing a variety of methodological approaches.
