Gender and Sexualities in Psychology

About the Series

Gender and Sexualities in Psychology is a book series showcasing scholarly work over a wide range of areas within gender and sexualities in psychology, and the intersection of gender, feminism, sexualities and LGBTIQ psychology with other areas of the discipline.

The series includes theoretically and empirically informed scholarship including critical, feminist, queer, trans, social, and progressive perspectives. Creative and innovative methodological approaches are encouraged, as are proposal which are intersectional and/or global in topic or reach. The series adopts an inclusive approach to the discipline of psychology (as well as its cross-cutting relationship to related disciplines) and a recognition of the diversity in research on genders and sexualities.

We welcome proposals for traditional and innovative formats, including research monographs, edited collections, textbooks, research methods, and crossover books that target both academics and/or practitioners. We also welcome proposals from researchers at all career stages.

To get in touch about writing or editing a book for the series, please contact Elizabeth Peel ([email protected]) or Elizabeth Stokoe ([email protected]).
