Class: Culture is designed to lend energy and direction to the growing body of work addressing the impact of class on the framing and formation of U.S. and global culture. It takes its impetus from the urgent new attention, within the American academy and outside it, to ever-increasing disparities of wealth and their cultural effects in what has been called the new Gilded Age.

Class: Culture seeks books that offer new paradigms for considering what class is and how class "works" in U.S. culture. The series foregrounds work that advances our understanding of class differences, the lived experience of class, and especially, the inscription of these in the arts and letters, their ramifications in visual and social history, and their structuring of political economy across time and region.
