Series Editors: Satya P. Mohanty, Michael Hames-García, Linda Martín Alcoff, Paula M. L. Moya, and Tobin Siebers
The Future of Minority Studies is a timely series that represents the most innovative work being done in the broad field defined as “minority studies.” Drawing on the intellectual and political vision of the Future of Minority Studies (FMS) Research Project, this book series will publish studies of the lives, experiences, and cultures of “minority” groups – broadly defined to include all those whose access to social and cultural institutions is limited primarily because of their social identities.
