Advancing Critical Pedagogy and Praxis Across Educational Settings is both an inquiry and response of gratitude to the work of critical scholars, educators, practitioners, and researchers who honor the complex realities of partnerships between school communities and institutions of higher education. This volume centers the voices of those who explore across time and in between spaces to illuminate synergistic approaches, pathways to new ideas and consciousness, relationships of mutual respect, and human-centered perspectives. This collective of narratives reveals the power of local schools and communities partnering with universities and organizations to disrupt inequitable social processes. The authors interrogate the creation and permeation of boundaries to understand interconnectivity of educational practices, community, and the impact of social contexts.
Studies on Global Practices of Isolation, Punishment, and Education of the Unwanted

The island has historically played a special role in the cultural imagination – sometimes as a place of promise of tranquillity; at other times the remoteness has seemed attractive for more sinister reasons. Using islands for extreme exclusion has a long history and remains important for understanding the complexities of inclusive education. This volume presents new case studies of island exclusion of prisoners, people with disability, and refugees in the Global North and South. It also offers reflections on practices of re-inclusion and the larger issues of inclusive education.

Critical Leaders and the Foundation of Disability Studies in Education aims to formalize the significance of early histories of understanding disability drawn from the scholarship of those who turned away from conventional status quo and pathologized constructs commonly accepted worldwide to explain disability in schools and society. The series begins with recognition of North American scholars including: Ellen Brantlinger, Lous Heshusius, Steve Taylor, Doug Biklen, and Thomas M. Skrtic. We will expand the series to include scholars from several international countries who likewise formed analyses that shaped the terrain for the emergence of critical perspectives that have endured and slowly given rise to the interdisciplinary field of Disability Studies in Education.

Critical Leaders and the Foundation of Disability Studies in Education is a sub-series to the book series Studies in Inclusive Education. The series and subseries have independent editorial teams that work closely together. For the volumes published in the main book series, please visit its webpage.
Critical storytellers provoke readers to acknowledge and question different perspectives. Critical storytelling questions unquestioned norms and assumptions. It exposes oppression in its various forms, such as violence, sexism, racism, bullying, exploitation, marginalization, dehumanization, and cultural imperialism. These passionate narrators have the guts to think, act, and question, vulnerably. Storytelling, when it's critical, is inclusive. It doubts common sense. It questions the status quo. It tears down regimes of domination. It envisions possibilities for change. Critical storytellers rely on various media and methods. Their stories are critical of metanarratives that are exclusionary and divisive. Critical storytellers voice silences and offer new narratives in their creative work. The Critical Storytelling book series will include diverse storytelling methods, theoretical approaches, and narrative frameworks.

On (De)Coloniality: Curriculum Within and Beyond the West is a beacon in the struggle against epistemicide and the colonialities of being, power, and knowledge. It attempts to bring to the fore an analysis that focuses on non-Western/non-Eurocentric epistemological frameworks. In a world that still struggles to see its own overt epistemological diversity, On (De)Coloniality is an open space in which to challenge epistemological fascism. It encourages curriculum scholars to engage in dialogues about non-Western/non-Eurocentric epistemologies within and beyond the Western Eurocentric platform. We invite ‘complicated conversations’ that dig into new avenues such as those of Itinerant Curriculum Theory (ICT), and, in so doing, introduce a new language that helps to open despotic epistemological canons, and dares to promote a different way of thinking and talking about the educational and curriculum phenomena.

Enhancing Social Justice, a Global Orientation, and Equity in Schools and Society
Author:
In Moral and Political Dimensions of Critical-Democratic Citizenship Education, Wiel Veugelers analyses theory, policy and practice of moral education and citizenship education in the past few decades. He shows that there are different orientations in national and global moral education and citizenship education. He criticises the strong orientation on the individual and on adaptation, and argues for more emphasises on social justice, equity and democracy.

This volume brings together articles Veugelers published in the past 25 years. Each article is introduced by a reflection on the reasons for the article, its responses, and lessons that are still relevant. The book ends with a large chapter that overviews central developments and presents a programme for future theory, research, policy and practice in moral education and citizenship education with a strong focus on democracy and empowerment: the moral should become more political and the political more moral.
