In a year with overlapping global crises, from the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic to sweeping social unrest and a racial reckoning spurred by the death of George Floyd, the Palgrave Education books list has continued to reflect the role of education in responding to societal challenges using an intersectional lens with a view towards social justice.
As local governments, teachers, parents, and students faced the daunting task of transitioning to remote learning in 2020, titles like Unschooling and Re-imagining Technology Enhanced Learning helped demystify unconventional paths to learning. We devoted the inaugural episode of the Social Science Matters podcast to the topic of school lunch and its significance to the social and emotional wellbeing of students.
We joined our authors in reaffirming our commitment to justice and equality in the movement for Black lives. These themes are reflected in our coverage, including the launch of the series Palgrave Studies in Race, Inequality and Social Justice in Education which confronts education’s role in reproducing racial inequality and calls for the dismantling of existing racist structures.
2020 emerged as another strong year for Palgrave Education handbooks, with the publication of The Palgrave Handbook of Global Social Work Education, The Palgrave Handbook of Citizenship and Education and The Palgrave Handbook of African Education and Indigenous Knowledge, all available now!
