New Podcast Series Applies Social Science to Social Justice Issues

February 28, 2024 687

Sage (the parent of Social Science Space) and the Surviving Society podcast have launched a collaborative podcast series, Social Science for Social Justice. The series is based on Sage’s book series of the same name and features interviews with the series’ authors discussing their research into issues including islamophobia in psychology and the commodification of care during the pandemic.  

In the first episode, which is out now, host Chantelle Lewis talks to series editors Meredith D. Clark, Jason Arday, and Delayna Spencer about the long history of social scientists contributing to community work and organizing. 

Speaking on the podcast, Spencer (commissioning editor for the book series at Sage), describes how Social Science for Social Justice aims to bring academic knowledge beyond the confines of the ivory tower, making ideas accessible and usable “in order to reach a wider audience and get them interested in really urgent issues of social justice.”   

On selecting authors for the series, she continues, “it’s really important to me to find authors who are working on the ground, who are engaged, and who are working within and alongside communities. So they might not always be academics who are within a university. They might be working for a charity organization, they might be part of a social activist group. It’s about really showing the breadth of what and who an expert is. 

The first episode is available now on Spotify, Apple, and all major podcasting platforms. New episodes will be released on the Surviving Society podcast feed over the coming months.  

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.
