NYU Press is beginning a new book series on Families, Law, and Society. The series will be edited by Nancy Dowd, the David Levin Chair in Family Law and Director of the Center on Children and Families at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.
Families, Law, and Society will publish innovative work exploring the social, legal, and political issues that lie at the center of conversations about the family in modern life . . . The series aims to address the wide range of issues that inform and influence family law in both the private realm (e.g., divorce, adoption, marriage) and public domain (e.g., welfare, child abuse, juvenile justice). While interdisciplinary research is encouraged, the series editor will strive to ensure that all books published in Families, Law, and Society consider the interrelationship between family and law, and critically examine the social and cultural changes in the lived realities of families and the relationship between families and the law.
Proposals for book contributions to the series are sought. Read the full announcement and see the submission guidelines here: Download NYU Book Series Announcement.
