Black Food Justice

Series Editors: Ashanté Reese and Hanna Garth

The Black Food Justice series publishes new scholarship at the intersection of Black studies and critical food studies. While books may address any aspect of producing, distributing, or consuming food, the series features scholarship that explores how Blackness can be theorized and understood through the study of food and/or how the meaning of food itself is challenged and transformed when analyzed through theoretical frameworks grounded in Black thought and liberation. As ethnographers of everyday life who have been working as both food justice scholars and activists in the U.S. and beyond for over a decade each, the series editors shaped this series with the intention to name, define, and create future visions for Black food justice scholarship that can have material implications for protecting, nourishing, and cherishing Black life.

Where Religion Lives

Series Editor: Kristy Nabhan-Warren
Where Religion Lives publishes ethnographies of religious life. The series features the methods of religious studies along with anthropological approaches to lived religion. The religious studies perspective encompasses attention to historical contingency, theory, religious doctrine and texts, and religious practitioners’ intimate, personal narratives. The series also highlights the critical realities of migration and transnationalism.
