The way people act and work – and are enhanced or replaced by technology – in employment and practice settings in the future, will inevitably evolve incrementally or radically. This series considers probable, possible and preferable practice futures and employability, along with accompanying educational influences and support. Wisdom is a key dimension of our discussions of practice and education. The books in this series examine directions that are currently underway, future visioned and at the edge of imagination in transforming practices. The authors reflect on how these transformations are being or could be influenced by many factors including changes in society, nations and global connections, in the physical environment, workplaces (physical and virtual) and in the socio-economic-political contexts of the world and its nations. The authors in this series bring a rich range of practical and academic knowledge and experience to examine these issues. Through the conversations in these books readers can enter into these debates from multiple perspectives – work, organisations, education, professional practice, employability, society, globalisation, humanity, spirituality and the environment.

The Brill Guides to Scholarship in Education are short introductions to various fields in education for experts and novices. Though sophisticated in content, the style of these books will be less structured or restricted than existing guides taking a novel approach, they can be used as an educational tool in undergraduate and graduate courses as introductory texts.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by e-mail to Assistant Editor Evelien van der Veer.
Arts, Creativities, and Learning Environments in Global Perspectives aims at investigating the encounters that can occur between the arts and creativities in various learning environments and cultural contexts. The series intends to explore the multiplicity of these approaches by presenting perspectives from diverse learning environments, not solely formal institutions like schools, universities, academies, and colleges, but also non-formal ones (cultural institutions, libraries, museums, theatres, orchestras, archives, organisations, and work-places) or informal ones (play and games, community projects, amateur art, and clubs). This means that a pluralistic view on the artS – indeed, plural – is being embraced by including artistic expressions from all genres and artistic encounters at all levels, including the arts-based, artist-led, arts-inspired, arts-integrated. We encourage contributions from all over the world, in order to challenge a well-established Western-centred understanding of creativity and art (singular). This series will strongly support global perspectives, cross-cultural studies, critical theories, creative dissemination and a broader re-framing of the role of the arts for learning and for society.
The series critically investigates and informs the construction of youth identity and identity in general through the study of various forms of contemporary media. It will expand the notions of critical media literacy and its implications for multiple understandings of culture and youth. Since popular culture (including media texts) is one of the primary sites of education for our youth, and all of us, it is crucial for those scholars involved in critical media studies to discuss these issues in book form. The scope of books in this series will include scholarly investigations into the connections among the symbolic order, various forms of cultural artifacts and multiple critical readings of these artifacts within the context of critical/transformational media literacy. How do multiple interpretations of popular culture within conceptualizations of media enhance our understandings of education and how can critical pedagogy, in the Freirian sense, be expanded to develop a student’s critical consciousness of the texts (books, films, games, social media, etc.) that surround them in popular culture.

Advances in Teaching and Teacher Education is an international book series that aims to provide an important outlet for sharing the state-of-the-art research, knowledge, and practices of teaching and teacher education. The series helps promote the discussion, improvement, and assessment of teachers’ quality, teaching, and instructional innovations including technology integration at all school levels as well as through teacher education around the world. With no specific restriction to disciplines, the series strives to address and synthesize different aspects and stages in teaching and teacher professional development both within and across disciplines, various interactions throughout the process of instructional activities and teacher education from various theoretical, policy, psychological, socio-cultural, or cross-cultural perspectives. The series features books that are contributed by researchers, teacher educators, instructional specialists, and practitioners from different education systems.
This book series aims to develop a field of overlapping research that crosses and integrates the domains, disciplines, subjects and themes of cultural pluralism, democracy and social justice. Each theme is taken up individually in many debates but our focus is to bring together advanced and critical analyses that transcend boundaries, languages, disciplines and theoretical and conceptual approaches. We are interested in books that can problematize cultural pluralism in relation to, with and around democracy and socio-environmental justice, especially in relation to education. Our focus on cultural pluralism is intentional, and we aim to move the debate on identity, difference and lived experience forward within a critical lens, seeking to create new, varied and meaningful discussions that go beyond the normative labels of multiculturalism and interculturalism. The literature around education for democracy that underscores political literacy, critical engagement and transformative education is also highly relevant here as is the field of social justice, which examines power relations, laws and policies, structures and experiences at myriad levels. The guiding principles for books in this series include: critical analysis; interdisciplinary; nuanced and complexified thinking; epistemological interrogation; varied research approaches; innovation; openness to international and comparative studies. The books in this series will include case studies, comparative analyses, and collaborations across linguistic, social, ethnic, racial, national, religious and gender boundaries, which may include empirical, conceptual and theoretical frameworks and analysis.
While not an exhaustive or exclusive list, some of the areas that will be of interest for this book series include: Migration, immigration and displacement; Identity and power; Globalization, neoliberalism and cultural pluralism; Critical epistemology; Democracy and diversity; Social justice and environmental justice; Media analyses and studies; Macro-sociological studies; Political ecology; Cultural diversity; Educational change.

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
