Concordia University Press Announces the Launch of Three New Series
20 February 2023 - Concordia University Press is pleased to announce the launch of three new book series, with publications forthcoming.
Series editors: Miranda Campbell (Toronto Metropolitan University) and Benjamin Woo (Carleton University)
Cultural production and Everyday Life disrupts narrow, economistic, and instrumentalized views of culture and seeks to expand what counts as “cultural production” and who counts as a “cultural producer” beyond creative industries success stories. By focusing on lived experience and always insisting on thinking of the cultural and the social together, this series provides lines of inquiry into cultural forms, producers, and communities that have been marginalized, received less attention, or otherwise have not been considered cultural or significant.
Series editors: Stacy Allison-Cassin (Dalhousie University), Monika Kin Gagnon (Concordia University), and Janine Marchessault (York University)
Counter-Archives: Media and Material Practices will explore the theoretical, methodological, and political questions that arise from the evolving nature of archives as keepers of memory and collective histories. Volumes will create a dialogue between scholars, artists, archivists, librarians, curators, media professionals, and policymakers, while reactivating media and materials and refreshing methodologies and approaches to history, to national and transnational cultures, and to community-based collective memories and social practices.
Series editor: Alex D. Ketchum (McGill University)
Feminist Tech Histories encourages scholarship that examines the ways in which tech can both support and hinder feminist practices, causes, and worldmaking projects. Books in this series will address questions of how the use of tech has been gendered, racialized, and classed, while revealing how analogue and digital tech has impacted and been transformed by marginalized communities, including Indigenous peoples, LGBT2Q+ folks, people of colour, and immigrants.
