Transformative Justice Book Series

A Project of the Anarchist Studies Initiative (ASI) at SUNY Cortland
Published by Arissa Media Group

Peer-Reviewed Book Series


Arissa Media Group has formed a relationship with the Anarchist Studies Initiative (ASI) at SUNY Cortland (the first academic anarchist center) to create, Transformative Justice, one of the first peer-reviewed book series by a social justice independent popular publisher.

About Book Series
Transformative Justice argues for an inclusive socio-political and economic community of peace, justice, and respect. The book series is praxis and intersectionally based was and is designed to build up the common activist's knowledge of justice while at the same time appealing to academic specialists to address the important topics such as freedom, democracy, identity, culture, repression, security, ecology, conflict, and peace.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the Transformative Justice book series will connect with a broad range of disciplines such as: women's studies, globalization, anarchist studies, economics, ethnic studies, critical animal studies, queer and trans studies, science, history, environmental studies, media studies, political science, pan-african studies, critical criminology, disability studies, sociology, religion, anthropology, philosophy, and cultural studies.
