Watch the Webinar: Remodeling the Ivory Tower – Social Science for Social Justice

December 7, 2022 1877

To herald the launch of its new Social Science for Social Justice book series, SAGE Publishing (the parent of Social Science Space) held an online roundtable exploring how to diversify knowledge production in academe.

Speakers at the December 13 event included the editors of the series, Meredith D. Clark of Northeastern University and Jason Arday of the University of Glasgow, and the authors of the first two books in the series, Francesca Sobande of Cardiff University and Tarek Younis of Middlesex University.

Sobande’s book, Consuming Crisis: Commodifying Care and COVID-19, details how consumer culture capitalized on the COVID-19 pandemic, while Younis’s book, The Muslim, State and Mind: Psychology in Times of Islamophobia, unpacks where the politics of psychology and psychiatry and the politics of Muslims overlap.

Panelists explored questions such as:

• How do we move beyond preconceived notions of what an academic text looks like?
• How do we define “expert” and why?
• What is the history and impact of gatekeeping in academic publishing?
• And how do we ensure that social science knowledge has influence outside of the academy to impact communities in a meaningful way?

SAGE’s Social Science for Social Justice book series aims to provide a platform for emerging academics, journalists, and activists of color to address vital societal issues drawing from international and interdisciplinary insights presented in jargon-free language for the widest possible audience. Additional titles coming in 2023 will cover topics such as racial trauma, gender, and African feminisms. 

Sage, the parent of Social Science Space, is a global academic publisher of books, journals, and library resources with a growing range of technologies to enable discovery, access, and engagement. Believing that research and education are critical in shaping society, 24-year-old Sara Miller McCune founded Sage in 1965. Today, we are controlled by a group of trustees charged with maintaining our independence and mission indefinitely.
