The Society Pages Book Series

Thanks to W.W. Norton & Company, my clients The Society Pages now have a full set of three published, edited volumes, with more to come (volumes on debt and culture are in the hopper already). Each draws on materials published as original features on our website and ties in content from our suite of blogs, The Community Pages, which include blockbusters Sociological Images, Cyborgology, Public Criminology, and Girl w/ Pen! Each book also has a companion website and a full discussion guide. Even better? It’s great scholarship at a trifling price ($15), and the originals remain online, for free, even when they make it into a volume. How lucky are we?

About Letta Page

Founding Associate Editor and Producer (Former) The Society Pages Senior Managing Editor Contexts Magazine In Twitter terms, I self-present as a disarmingly earnest editor, translator of academia, portmanteuse, and domesticated roustabout. More professionally, I might say: I am a jargon-slayer for hire. The founding associate editor and producer of The Society Pages and current senior managing editor of Contexts magazine (the public outreach journal of the American Sociological Association), I have nearly two decades' experience in academic editing across a range of disciplines. I've edited and written copy for publications from Oxford University Press, Routledge, Taylor & Francis, W.W. Norton, the University of Chicago Press, Cambridge University Press, and many others, along with dozens of journals. As a sort of fun "palate cleanser" (trust me, when you're editing books on neoliberalism and genocide, always good to have a fallback), I write copy for organizations like Stand Up! Records and I teach cardio barre fitness classes at Six Degrees Uptown. I also have a background in the visual arts and was a founder of First Amendment Arts (now CoExhibitions) in Minneapolis, MN. I hold degrees in history and classical studies from Boston University and an art degree from the University of Minnesota. pagesmithing.com Click here to read my Friday Roundup posts on The Editors' Desk.
