About the Series

For over two decades the Routledge Transformations book series has housed interdisciplinary feminist research on crucial, global issues. From Sara Ahmed examining the relationship between strangers, embodiment and community; to Stephanie Lawler’s stories of mothers and daughters; and collections from feminist thinkers tracing the shifts in feminism over time; Transformations has published over 25 distinct texts that contribute to the rich histories of feminist theorising. 

Transformations seeks to reinvigorate its commitment to inclusion and feminist praxis by expanding and diversifying its pool of authors. We especially welcome proposals from transformative voices emerging from activism intersecting with academic research, voices from the global majority world, and voices that highlight how an intersectional focus contributes to the decolonisation of academy and popular feminism.

The Transformations series is an inclusive feminist publication. In light of the many ways currently that ‘feminism’ and ‘women,’ and/or ‘female’ amongst other things, have become weaponised in trans-exclusionary practices, we invite you to make your own trans inclusion explicit. This is because we recognise the many coded ways that discrimination is playing out, including through language (see for example ‘dog whistles’). We make this invitation to authors as a way to foster and celebrate inclusive feminisms; and in solidarity with people of all genders. We do not mean that your books need to relate to trans lives specifically, but suggest in introducing your topic, language and terms; you take the opportunity to demonstrate your inclusive stance for these reasons. We acknowledge that it is a sad indictment of the current circumstances for us to make this suggestion in the first instance but we are also aware of the very real harms of discrimination and, conversely, the value of affirmation.
