Call for Papers

New Book Series from Pluto: ‘Mapping Social Reproduction Theory’

20th Jul 2018

Pluto Press are launching a new book series called ‘Mapping Social Reproduction Theory’.

We are putting a call out for any prospective authors who want to submit proposals to the series for consideration. The series editors are Tithi Bhattacharya and Sue Ferguson.


Capitalism is a system of exploitation and oppression. This series uses the insights of Social Reproduction Theory to deepen our understanding of the intimacy of that relationship, and the contradictions within it, past and present. The books include empirical investigations of the ways in which social oppressions of race, sexuality, ability, gender and more inhabit, shape and are shaped by the processes of creating labour power for capital. As well, the books in this series engage a critical exploration of Social Reproduction, enjoining debates about the theoretical and political tools required to challenge capitalism today.

You can read more on our website.

Series editors: Tithi Bhattacharya, Professor of South Asian History and the Director of Global Studies at Purdue University; and Sue Ferguson, Associate Professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts, Wilfrid Laurier University.
