Call for Volume Proposals, Studies in Educational Ethnography

New Series Editor - Prof. Rodney Hopson

The primary objective of Studies in Educational Ethnography is to present original ethnographic research, perspectives, and methodologies in the development of theory, practice, policy, and praxis in and with implications toward schooling and education in neighborhood, community, and global contexts.

In complex neighborhood, community, and global contexts, schooling and educational ethnographies should situate themselves beyond isolated, classroom and single site educational communities or concern themselves with narrow methodological pursuits. The ethnographic research, perspectives and methodologies featured in this volume should extend our understandings of the sociocultural phenomena and their global and local meanings. Studying classrooms and educational communities without concomitant understanding of the dynamics and facets of neighborhood life render educational political and policy analyses potentially incomplete. This volumes seeks schooling and educational ethnographies that also concern themselves with larger questions that address those ideas and approaches to address poverty, power, language, race, schooling, education and underachievement, public health, immigration, juvenile [in]justice, inequality, homelessness, housing, neighborhood and community [re]development, [un]employment, environmental in both the developed and developing worlds.

Volume proposals are welcome which embrace any of the foregoing issues articulated, or issues closely related to the core themes of the volume.

Initial inquires should be directed to the Editor of the series, Rodney Hopson or the Publisher of the series, Mark Moreau who will be able to provide the necessary documentation, guidance and advice to progress the inquiry to proposal stage.
