    Book series: Diversity and Inclusion Research

    Series editor: Thomas Köllen, University of Bern


    Springer has recently launched the new book series 'Diversity and Inclusion Research', which examines the various facets of diversity in a variety of contexts, as well as approaches to and perspectives on diversity and inclusion. It presents organizational research on workforce diversity, and covers diversity and inclusion-related issues within communities, cities, regions, nations, and societies.     

    The series welcomes functional and intersectional perspectives on diversity, as well as constructivist perspectives on processes of "doing" or "performing" diversity. In terms of inclusion, it welcomes research on broader initiatives (such as generalized diversity management approaches), as well as on practices of inclusion that focus on specific dimensions of diversity; these can include age, appearance, ethnicity, disability, gender, gender identity, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, sex, or any other characteristic or demographic in which persons can differ from each other, or, conversely, which they share.

    The series publishes research from the broad range of academic disciplines within the social sciences (e.g. economics and business administration, linguistics, political science, history, law, psychology, sociology, geography, and education) and humanities (e.g. philosophy and religion). It strongly encourages interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research, as well as critical perspectives on diversity and inclusion-related issues. By welcoming research from a variety of sectoral, national, and cultural contexts, the series will make an essential contribution to shaping the academic discourse on diversity and inclusion.

    Book proposals are invited for research monographs and edited collections that fit within the series' scope and themes. Please email inquiries and your initial book proposals to the Series Editor (thomas.koellen@iop.unibe.ch).
