African American Studies

African American Studies, John R. Howard and Robert C. Smith, eds.
This series has offered rigorous and innovative African American studies scholarship for over 25 years. Largely social scientific in methodology, the books in this series have historically been the backbone of African American studies scholarship at SUNY Press, making us a leader in black political science and public policy scholarship. 

Race, Ethnicity, Crime, and Justice, Shaun L. Gabbidon, ed.
This is a series in criminology that explores the interplay of race and ethnicity with crime and justice. Since racial profiling, treatment of various groups in the justice system, and stereotypes about race and crime regularly become matters of public controversy, this series presents particularly relevant scholarship.

Philosophy and Race, Robert Bernasconi and T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting, eds.
The series tackles abstract questions like the concept of race and epistemological foundations of racism, concrete investigations of subjects ranging from the incarceration of political activists of color to race and nationality in the post-9/11 United States, and studies of how philosophers such as Nietzsche and Sartre can be read within a framework of race. Also looks at primary source material of such 18th-century philosophers as Kant and his writings on race.

Multiethnic Literature, Mary Jo Bona, ed.
In the past 30 years, scholars, publishers, writers, and teachers have been involved in the recovery of lost, forgotten, and overlooked texts in which the topic of ethnicity remains a central and defining feature of American literary identity. At the same time, contemporary work by writers from various ethnic locations within the United States is more frequently taught within the field of American literature, and literary scholars are increasingly in dialogue with new research in the fields of ethnic studies, immigration and migration studies, and postcolonial studies. This series in multiethnic literature is dedicated to publishing quality monographs and edited volumes that explore multiethnic literary works, both canonical and noncanonical, from a variety of critical and theoretical perspectives.

Anthropology

The New Netherland Experience, Charles Gehring and William A. Starna, eds.
Through the latest research, key primary documents, and accessible overviews, the New Netherland Experience illuminates the peoples, history, and culture of New Netherland. Interdisciplinary in scope, the series especially welcomes annotated editions of primary materials and well-researched, narrative-based studies of the Dutch colonial experience in northeastern North America.

National Identities, Thomas M. Wilson, ed.
An interdisciplinary, transnational series that explores the many social and cultural factors that construct national identity in the everyday lives of the people who subscribe to being part of a “nation.”

Asian Studies

Chinese Philosophy and Culture, Roger T. Ames, ed.
This series provides a broad consideration of Chinese philosophy and culture, encompassing both historical sinological research and more purely philosophical work. It covers material from early China to the modern period, and includes philosophy, religion, literature, the arts, and culture generally. A well-regarded and prominent component of the series is work in comparative East-West philosophy.

Asian Studies Development, Roger T. Ames and Peter D. Hershock, eds.
Books in this series are intended to help undergraduate faculty, trained largely in Western material, expand their knowledge of Asian studies. As worldviews change from Eurocentric to global and much that was taught before was admittedly stereotypical or insubstantial, many faculty want and need to expand their knowledge of Asian culture, philosophy, and history.

Japan in Transition, Jerry Eades, ed.
This series explores contemporary Japan, particularly cultural and demographic change, largely from an ethnographic and social scientific perspective. Focuses on the considerable transitions in today’s Japan.

Korean Studies, Sung Bae Park, ed.
This is a wide-ranging series on Korean studies that includes books in both humanities and social sciences and on historical and contemporary subjects.

Hindu Studies, Wendy Doniger, ed.
This is a series on the Hindu religion, including considerations of texts and practices. It also includes larger considerations of Indian culture heavily embedded in Hinduism, such as scholarship on imaginative literature in Indian languages.

Tantric Studies, Paul E. Muller-Ortega and Douglas Renfrew Brooks, eds.
This series focuses on tantra, the esoteric branch of Hinduism, both its philosophy and practice. (This series does not publish on Buddhist tantra.)

Cultural and Transnational Studies

Global Modernity, Arif Dirlik, ed.
The globalization of capitalism since the 1980s has also globalized capitalist modernity and, rather than leading to social and cultural homogeneity, new fault lines have emerged within and across societies. Ironically, the global capitalist economy appears to have generated renewed fervor for the resurrection or revitalization of cultural and religious traditions that were once deemed incompatible with modernity, but which now mark alternative modernities and alternative claims on modernity. This series in global modernity is dedicated to publishing quality monographs and edited volumes that explore the various dimensions of contemporary struggles over modernity.

Praxis: Theory in Action, Nancy A. Naples, ed.
Praxis: Theory in Action highlights the exciting, innovative, and interdisciplinary research on the intersection of theory and practice that has been the hallmark of critical feminist, queer, postcolonial, and race studies since the inception of these interdisciplinary academic fields. This new SUNY Press series seeks to bring together the work of scholars, activists, and scholar-activists in order to forge new connections between academic inquiry and on-the-ground strategies to create social change.

Education

Critical Issues in Higher Education, Jason Lane and D. Bruce Johnstone, eds.
The State University of New York has developed a series of national conferences and edited books that explore critical issues affecting public colleges and universities and the communities they serve.  This Critical Issues Series is inspired by the vision of Chancellor Nancy Zimpher and SUNY’s strategic plan, The Power of SUNY.  As an academic organization, SUNY believes that it has a responsibility to foster open dialogue and scholarly research on key questions facing higher education and society at large.  Each fall, SUNY hosts a conference in New York State, featuring a large slate of diverse speakers and perspectives on a specific topic.  In conjunction with the conference topic, SUNY Press publishes an edited volume that brings together writings from the nation’s leading scholars and other thought leaders.  Both the book and the conference series are intended to spur debate, share best practices, and investigate opportunities to improve educational delivery and outcomes for the twenty-first century.

Global Issues in Higher Education, Kevin Kinser, Jason E. Lane, Philip G. Altbach, and S. Ilgu Ozler, eds.
The SUNY Series in Global Issues in Higher Education will promote and build knowledge about how aspects of globalization are transforming higher education students, programs, institutions, and systems. The series editors will draw on the international education expertise of the Institute for Global Education Policy Studies (University at Albany), the research and dissemination arms of the Rockefeller Institute of Government (University at Albany), the practical administrative experience of the SUNY Office of Global Affairs, and the international education experts from across the SUNY system to support and guide the development of the series. The series will serve as a means of support and dissemination for scholarly research and writing needed now to elaborate on how the increasing interconnectedness of nations, cultures, and economies affects higher education.

Possible book topics include faculty and student exchanges, international research collaborations, joint degree programs, multinational colleges and universities, higher education and public diplomacy, the effect of globalization on national systems of higher education, and higher education and national competitiveness, among many others.

Transforming Subjects: Psychoanalysis, Culture, and Studies in Education, Deborah Britzman, ed.
The series invites manuscripts across the academic disciplines in pedagogy, in psychoanalysis and education, in theoretical and philosophical debates on the nature of the human subject, and in studies of transformation in social change. In highlighting psycho-cultural discussions of educational matters, the series seeks to integrate new scholarly approaches to transforming subjects. As “home” for studies in aesthetics, literature, social thought, social change, philosophical and psychoanalytic debates, and the status of relationality, plurality, and ethics taken through scenes of the emotional world, the series involves new visions of education that integrates the great problems of our time with innovative orientations to transforming the subject of education.

Film Studies

Horizons of Cinema, Murray Pomerance, ed.
Horizons of Cinema aims to publish accessible, critical, and appealing studies of the history, production, cultural reception, and social meaning of film, considered either retrospectively or with a view to future developments (or both). Subjects may include specific films, filmmakers, genres, historical eras of film production, and production processes; as well as multicultural, ethnographic, technical, and theoretical aspects of cinema.

Indigenous Studies

Native Traces: Original Studies about American Indians, Jace Weaver, ed.
Native American Indians are the traces of distinct continental cultures, and a crucial presence in contemporary literature and history. Native Traces is an interdisciplinary series of innovative critical studies by and about the literatures, cultures, and histories of American Indians. Publications in this series revisit long-standing notions and assumptions, past and present, and offer different and often radical ways of understanding the history and heritage of Native American Indians.

Tribal Worlds: Critical Studies in American Indian Nation Building, Brian Hosmer and Larry Nesper, eds.
Tribal Worlds showcases emerging research on how the Native peoples of North America have forged modern indigenous communities amidst national and international pressures as well as the ongoing effects of colonialism. The series is particularly interested in studies that blend ethnography with archival research, that situate current expressions of tribal governance and reservation political economy within comparative and historical contexts, or that focus on conditions of settler colonialism and tribal nation building. This series also encourages studies that engage emerging methodological and interpretive issues, particularly as they engage current issues and challenges.

Living Indigenous Philosophies, Agnes B. Curry and Anne Waters, eds.
Indigenous scholars have been slow in general to pursue philosophy as an academic discipline, historically favoring fields like anthropology and literature instead. This is changing, however, and this series chronicles the work being done by the rapidly increasing ranks of indigenous philosophers from all over the world.

Italian American Studies

Italian/American Culture, Fred Gardaphe, ed.
This series is the first and, to date, only series to focus exclusively on the study of Italian American culture. Italian Americans comprise the fifth largest ethnic group in the United States and are deeply entwined with the history of New York State, yet Italian Americans have only recently begun to systematically study and evaluate their culture. Because of the diverse nature of the field, the series is open to a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, literature, history, philosophy, linguistics, and media studies, as well as a variety of forms, including traditional academic monographs, oral histories, fiction, and creative nonfiction. With the establishment of the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute as a permanent research facility in the CUNY system, along with the Program in Italian American Studies and the Alfonse M. D'Amato Chair in Italian American and Italian Studies at SUNY Stony Brook, the future for Italian American studies is bright, and this series provides Italian American scholars and writers an opportunity to develop important contributions to this growing field of study.

Multiethnic Literature, Mary Jo Bona, ed.
In the past 30 years, scholars, publishers, writers, and teachers have been involved in the recovery of lost, forgotten, and overlooked texts in which the topic of ethnicity remains a central and defining feature of American literary identity. At the same time, contemporary work by writers from various ethnic locations within the United States is more frequently taught within the field of American literature, and literary scholars are increasingly in dialogue with new research in the fields of ethnic studies, immigration and migration studies, and postcolonial studies. This series in multiethnic literature is dedicated to publishing quality monographs and edited volumes that explore multiethnic literary works, both canonical and noncanonical, from a variety of critical and theoretical perspectives.

Jewish Studies

Contemporary Jewish Thought, Richard A. Cohen, ed.
Throughout the twentieth century, and especially in the United States, France, Germany, and Israel, Jewish thought has been creative, profound, and productive, drawing on such diverse disciplines as philosophy, religious studies, historiography, feminism, literary studies, mysticism, aesthetics, and political theory. In all these areas the stimulus for intellectual development has come not only from internal developments within the long tradition of Jewish civilization, but also, and often most poignantly, from areas outside of Judaism and Jewish thought proper. Under the general editorship of Richard A. Cohen, this series seeks to publish books that explore and extend the boundaries of contemporary Jewish thought.

Latin American Studies

Latin American and Iberian Thought and Culture, Jorge J. E. Gracia and Rosemary Feal, eds.
The series publishes disciplinary studies in philosophical, political, and social thought as well as more specific investigations of the ideas of important historical and contemporary figures of Latin America, Spain, and Portugal. It also features the results of broader, interdisciplinary research on various cultural expressions such as literature and art insofar as they shed light on intellectual history.

New York Studies

An American Region: Studies in the Hudson Valley, Thomas Wermuth, ed.
From Henry Hudson's initial explorations in 1609 to the recent controversy over dredging for PCBs, the Hudson Valley has been a microcosm of America. Devoted solely to the study of the Hudson River and its environs, this series publishes academic and trade books that aim to advance our understanding of this important region and the major role it has played in the historical, cultural, financial, and political development of the United States.

Also looks at primary source material of such 18th-century philosophers as Kant and his writings on race.

Gender Theory, Tina Chanter, ed.
This series features works of philosophy on gender, sexual difference and the concept of “the other,” reproduction, and feminism, drawing from philosophers like Julia Kristeva, Luce Irigaray, Emmanuel Levinas, and Jean-François Lyotard, touching on other fields such as literature and film, rhetoric, public policy, law, and psychoanalysis. The series also features collections devoted to the work of Julia Kristeva, Sarah Kofman, Teresa Brennan, and Drucilla Cornell.

A collection of scholarly work which touches on the full range of esoteric thought, spanning Gnosticism, Hermetism, magic, astrology, alchemy, Rosicrucianism, Christian Theosophy, and more. Although primarily Western in focus, the series features material on various strands of Eastern religions—Buddhist, Hindu, and Sufi—that share esoteric orientation and influence. The series includes both original contributions and secondary works in religious studies, literature, history, and philosophy.

Political Science

American Constitutionalism, Robert J. Spitzer, ed.
Encouraging interdisciplinary inquiries, this series features both traditional and new perspectives on American constitutionalism. Welcome are traditional examinations of constitutional issues that incorporate court cases, the rule of law, constitutional history and development, civil liberties and civil rights, the separation of powers, and the role of the courts. Also of great interest are modes of constitutional inquiry that look at the role of institutions beyond the courts, relations between received constitutional meaning and popular understanding, and the myriad connections between law and politics.

Global Environmental Policy, Uday Desai, ed.
A series of scholarly monographs and edited volumes dealing with critical environmental issues that affect our world.  Series titles may approach these issues from a broad range of perspectives, including climate change, international and comparative policy making, politics, economics, political movements, resource use and management, sustainable development, and political economy.

New Political Science, Bradley J. Macdonald, ed.
A series of scholarly monographs and edited volumes that takes seriously that the study of politics is not just about understanding the world but also about creating the possibility for radical and progressive change towards justice and a fuller democratic life. The series is open to all fields of Political Science, as well as a variety of approaches, and is interested in historical, institutional and theoretical analyses that rethink the nature of politics in line with promoting and entrenching important practices toward justice and democracy. 

Thought and Legacy of Leo Strauss, Kenneth Hart Green, ed.
Books in this series deal directly with the interpretation of Strauss's thought in its various aspects, or with the explication of his diverse writings. Naturally the approach to Strauss's thought and writings may be either sympathetic or critical. Studies in which Strauss's works are compared with the works of other important thinkers are also welcome.  We also expect to publish works dedicated to the exploration of themes and issues which follow from Strauss's thought (i.e., "his legacy"), but do not deal directly with his thought or writings. We would also like to consider translations of important works on Strauss from other languages.

Public Policy, Anne L. Schneider and Helen M. Ingram, eds.
A series of scholarly monographs and edited volumes dealing with critical public policy issues that affect our world. Series titles may approach these issues from a broad range of perspectives, including books on specific policy areas such as climate change, immigration, education, taxation; the politics of public policy; comparative public policy; social movements; strategic public policy; and public policy and democracy.  

James N. Rosenau Series in Global Politics, David C. Earnest, ed.
This series, established in honor of former SUNY series editor James N. Rosenau, seeks to publish innovative books that acknowledge that the world is undergoing profound transformations even as the habits of people and collectives resist change. Books in the series will embrace the whole range of issues on the global agenda and will do so using a wide variety of methodologies.

Queer Studies

Queer Politics and Cultures
, Cynthia Burack and Jyl J. Josephson, eds.
From gays in the military to gay marriage, from Lawrence v. Texas to defense of marriage acts and amendments to state constitutions, from organized religious opposition to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights to LGBT/queer social activism, the cultural and political contexts of queer life and identity have given rise to a new interdisciplinary field of inquiry. Books in this series represent a range of identitarian and nonidentitarian perspectives from LGBT research on politics and culture to self-identified “queer” texts that interrogate boundaries of identity and social science research methods.

Religious Studies

Religious Studies, Harold Coward, ed.

Religion and the Environment, Harold Coward, ed.
This series provides an exploration of the interplay of religion and the natural world. It aims to include both theoretical work, such as environmental theology, and “religion-on-the-ground” accounts of how adherents interact with the environment. Considerations of religion’s role and resources in confronting the current ecological crisis are also welcome.

Hindu Studies, Wendy Doniger, ed.
This is a series on the Hindu religion, including considerations of texts and practices. It also includes larger considerations of Indian culture heavily embedded in Hinduism, such as scholarship on imaginative literature in Indian languages.

Presents books where theology uses continental thought. This is a particularly vital conversation at the present time. While these schools of thought are often considered antithetical, many among the current generation of theologians have been trained in, and appreciate, continental thought. Increasingly those on the continental side have become interested in approaching some concept of God.

Tantric Studies, Paul E. Muller-Ortega and Douglas Renfrew Brooks, eds.
This series focuses on tantra, the esoteric branch of Hinduism, both its philosophy and practice. (This series does not publish on Buddhist tantra.)

Islam, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, ed.
The series on Islam focuses on the theology and philosophy of this tradition. It includes translations and material in historical context. The series is particularly strong on material on Sufism, the mystical tradition of Islam. The series editor is one of the best-known Muslim intellectuals in the West.

Issues in the Study of Religion, Bryan Rennie, ed.
This series focuses on theoretical and methodological issues in the study of religion. It looks at theoreticians of religion and myth and asks disciplinary questions about religious studies as a field of study. Religious studies departments tend to include a wide range of areas and approaches and there is considerable interest in these disciplinary issues.

Buddhism and American Culture, John Whalen-Bridge and Gary Storhoff, eds.
Increasingly, Buddhism has become an American religion and moreover an American preoccupation for many who are interested in but are not followers of this path. This series looks at the cultural influence of Buddhism on American lives, art, and popular culture.

Transpersonal Psychology

Transpersonal and Humanistic Psychology, Richard D. Mann, ed.
Transpersonal psychology is a branch of humanistic psychology concerned with understanding and cultivating spirituality in human experience.

Included in the series are the works of Stanislav Grof, founder of the field and SUNY Press’s best-selling author of all time.

Integral Theory, Sean Esbjörn-Hargens, ed.
With roots in the yoga of Sri Aurobindo and a more recent articulation by Ken Wilber, integral theory is a worldview that seeks a comprehensive understanding of humans and the universe by combining psychological, social, and spiritual insights in a single framework. This series is starting off with books that put integral theory together with psychotherapy, education, and recovery.  Many other topics will be explored in future volumes.

Women’s and Gender Studies

Feminist Criticism and Theory, Michelle Massé, ed.
For over 20 years, this series has offered monographs and edited volumes that exemplify contemporary feminist thought. The series originally focused on feminist literary criticism, and in recent years it has broadened its focus to include more activist and interdisciplinary approaches.

Women, Crime, and Criminology, Meda Chesney-Lind and Russ Immarigeon, eds.
At its inception 15 years ago, the series in women, crime, and criminology offered important work in a new area of crime and justice studies. The series has continued to explore the important topics of women’s experiences of violence, prisons, and crime, key areas of inquiry within a well-developed women’s studies list.

Gender Theory, Tina Chanter, ed.
This series features works of philosophy on gender, sexual difference and the concept of “the other,” reproduction, and feminism, drawing from philosophers like Julia Kristeva, Luce Irigaray, Emmanuel Levinas, and Jean-François Lyotard, touching on other fields such as literature and film, rhetoric, public policy, law, and psychoanalysis. The series also features collections devoted to the work of Julia Kristeva, Sarah Kofman, Teresa Brennan, and Drucilla Cornell.

Genders in the Global South, Debra A. Castillo and Shelley Feldman, eds.
The specific concern of this series is to take up the challenge to explore more fully the intersection of critical large categories—gender, sexuality, dislocation/displacement—in addition to questions of identity and generation in the global south. The series will set up an engagement across Partition Studies in South Asia and Border Studies in the Latin American context. Rich analyses also will involve comparative case studies of other relevant world borders outside this framework; thus, the series will also accept proposals from scholars working on other southern locations including, and importantly, Africa and East Asia.
