Critical Essays Across Education
This new book series aims at providing readers with a set of monographs dealing with current educational issues from a research and theoretical perspective. In dealing with the many problems besetting our increasingly globalised world, education remains one of the most critical professions, with educational research and theorising being one of the most potent vehicles for comprehending and informing future policies and practices. Thus Critical Essays across Education intends to provide academics, policy-makers, research students and concerned general readers, with critical reflections on up-to-date ideas from the international research field of education. In particular this series will reflect the growing trend for borderland crossings in education, whereby cross-discipline research is creating new and important theoretical pathways.
Much theoretical and research-based writing in educational texts tends towards the inaccessible end of the readability dimension. So the brief for intending authors in this series will be to reflect on their research, and those of others, in such a way as to help educate the generalist, as well as the specialist.
