Transdisciplinary Studies is an internationally oriented book series created to generate new theories and practices to extricate transdisciplinary learning and research from the confining discourses of traditional disciplinarities. Within transdisciplinary domains, this series publishes empirically grounded, theoretically sound work that seeks to identify and solve global problems that conventional disciplinary perspectives cannot capture.
Cultural studies provides an analytical toolbox for both making sense of educational practice and extending the insights of educational professionals into their labors. In this context Transgressions: Cultural Studies and Education provides a collection of books in the domain that specify this assertion.
"This exciting and innovative series will bring a dynamic contribution to the exploration of the changing landscapes of education in the age of transnational migration. The proposed series is groundbreaking and timely." -- Michel Lokhorst – Director Sense Publishers
Migration has been adopted by many countries as a strategy to compete for the most talented, skillful, and resourceful and to ameliorate aging populations and labour shortages. The past few decades have witnessed both an expansion and transformation of international migration ﬂows. The resulting demographic, social and cultural changes have reconﬁgured the landscapes of education in the receiving societies.
Transnational Migration and Education aims to bring together international scholars with contributions from new and established scholars to explore the changing landscapes of education in the age of transnational migration. The Series includes authored and edited collections offering multidisciplinary perspectives with a wide range of topics including:
•global and comparative analyses of migration;
•the impact of migration on education and society;
•processes of exclusion and inclusion in migration and education, tensions between mobility;
•knowledge, and recognition;
•intersections of race, class, gender, sexual orientation and education;
•transnationalism, diaspora, and identity;
•transnational migration and youth;
•race and ethnic relations;
•ethnicity, diversity and education
