The Center for the Study of Citizenship announces its Series in Citizenship Studies, a book series created in partnership with Wayne State University Press. Books in the series are intended to reflect the Center's core belief that studying citizenship broadly will enhance the study of citizenship in its many parts and in this way the series will make a significant and unique contribution to an emerging scholarly field.

The Series in Citizenship Studies will encourage scholars to work across disciplinary boundaries in order to consider questions of identity, group membership, status, rights, and obligations from a variety of perspectives - artistic, cultural, economic, historical, legal, linguistic, literary, philosophical, political, and social. Titles selected for inclusion in the series will advance the interdisciplinary field of citizenship studies in a significant and identifiable way. Although the volumes published might be primarily empirical or normative, each will address theoretical issues and advance broader understandings of citizenship.
