The library is central to supporting course design and content selection. Faculty are increasingly asking libraries to acquire and provide materials from a broader, more diverse range of authors and subject areas to augment their courses and meet the needs of their students. 

Lived Places Publishing (LPP) exists to support librarians and faculty in this goal. We publish applied and concise course reading material in interdisciplinary collections. Each title we publish explores the intersection of identity and place, humanizing an issue through lived experience(s).

Here's a sampling of our books so you can get a sense of what we publish:

  1. Stories of Black Female Identity in the Making: Queering the Love in Blackness by Dr Kadian Pow (Black Studies)
  2. Creative Resistance: The Social Justice Practices of Monirah, Halleh, and Diala by Cindy Horst (Forced Migration Studies)
  3. Social Spaces for Older Queer Adults: A Guide for Social Work Practitioners by David Betts (Queer and LGBT+ Studies)
  4. (Re)constructing Memory, Place, and Identity: Sangre Mexicano, Corazon Chicano by Louis Mendoza (Latinx Studies)
  5. Improving the Experience of Health Care for People Living with Sensory Disability by Dr Annmaree Watharow MD, PhD (Disability Studies)
  6. My Precious Legacy: Slave Culture in the American South by Dr Deirdre Foreman (Black Studies)
  7. My Name Is: Is Your Name A Gift or A Burden? by Dr Javeria Shah (Cultural Anthropology)
  8. Trans(formations) and Tenderness: Rhetorics and Resources to Support Transgender Youth in the US by Prathim-Maya Dora-Laskey (Queer and LGBT+ Studies)
