Celebrate the Series in Citizenship Studies

Friday, February 20, 2015

Our new Series in Citizenship Studies is an interdepartmental partnership with the WSU Center for the Study of Citizenship that is over five years in the making. Books in the series will 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.”

We're excited to release the first title in the series, Generations: Rethinking Age and Citizenship edited by Richard Marback, at the annual Governance & Citizenship Conference on Wayne State's campus. The public is invited to join us for a free launch event on March 12, 2015 at 4:30 pm at McGregor Memorial Conference Center. Remarks will be given by Margaret E. Winters, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, Marc Kruman, director, Center for the Study of Citizenship, Kathryn Wildfong, editor-in-chief, WSU Press, and Richard Marback, editor of Generations. Complimentary bites and beverages will be provided.

The series will pick up steam in 2015, with three more books set to be published. Watch our website for all the information about the new titles and the series!
