Book Series in Citizenship Studies - Information for Potential Authors

The Series in Citizenship Studies is an inter-departmental book series that works across disciplinary boundaries to explore topics in the emerging field of citizenship studies from a variety of political, social, economic, and cultural perspectives.

Marc Kruman, director of the WSU Center for the Study of Citizenship and co-editor of the series, says, “The urgent need to understand citizenship at the dawn of the new millennium has encouraged many people around the globe to consider questions of identity, group membership, status, rights, and obligations. WSU’s Center for the Study of Citizenship aims to assume a leadership role in the creation and development of this new field.”
