Comparative and International Education: The Hispanic Americas aims to publish work by academics working in institutions in the Hispanic (Spanish and Portuguese speaking) Americas in order to reflect the theoretical and policy characteristics and priorities of the region. These can be quite different to those of researchers from the region now working in Australian, North American and European institutions. By placing the series in the broader series context, it avoids the titles being overlooked by researchers, teachers and students of comparative and international education who miss locating and additional C & I Education series listing.
The events of the last years have shaken the world of higher education. The post-COVID-19 period has raised multiple questions in key areas, from digitalisation over quality assurance to internationalisation. This book brings together scholars, practitioners and policymakers in higher education, and discusses in a variety of topics the future of the higher education sector in a rapidly changing context: the complexities of digital education, the need or necessity for innovation or the impact of globalisation are some of the topics addressed in this book. Those topics are brought together around one central theme: how can the future of higher education be accelerated to address in a sustainable way the needs of a changing global context?
Today’s teachers are charged with not only finding meaningful ways to integrate student use of technology in their classrooms, but also ways to more authentically assess student learning. The advancements in video technology have made classroom video production activities both affordable and feasible.

Collaborative Video Production (CVP) is a method of increasing higher order thinking, engagement, collaboration, and technology through the creation of video. The information provided in this book about the seven-step process of CVP, stems from both field research and practical classroom application. The video production process and the corresponding activities that are described by Joe P. Gaston and Byron Havard have been successfully conducted with students from elementary grades through higher ed. The focus of this book is on how to manage and facilitate CVP projects in the classroom.

Educators who are interested in more authentically engaging and assessing students' understanding of academic content will find this book to be of great benefit.
What do you do that can’t be measured? In this innovative debut on both the practice and study of critical educators, Restler answers back with radical care. Radical care in teaching and research; radical care as embodied and affective; radical care as justice work up against real and imagined deficits and racial capitalist scarcities. Drawing on a collaborative visual study with New York City public school teachers and her own art-research practice, Victoria Restler offers up a framework for radical care as relational, liberatory and fundamentally immeasurable.

Slipping between genres and styles—personal narrative, poetic prose, empirical study, and three multimodal artworks—this book brings old and new traditions in arts-based research into dialogue with scholarship on care, affect studies, and Black Feminisms. The volume is essential reading for scholars and practitioners interested in the study of care, qualitative and arts-based research methodologies, as well as teacher practice and assessment.
We live in a world where conversations about trauma are becoming commonplace and adopted people are using their voices to educate the general public about the effects of maternal separation and genealogical bewilderment. But for many adult adoptees the act of speaking truth to power is still fraught. Personal writing can unlock long held silences and help adult adoptees feel empowered to rewrite their narratives.

The need to deconstruct dominant narratives about adoption and its inherent loss and trauma is necessary if we are to reform an institution that has damaged many generations of mothers and children. Because many adoptees do not have access to adoption and trauma competent therapists, writing is an accessible therapeutic modality that can be used to reframe narratives that position adoptees as the object rather than the subject. 

Adult Adoptees and Writing to Heal shares the framework and method of using writing as a practice for adult adoptees, therapists, teachers, and researchers interested in learning how to migrate and heal embodied trauma. It analyzes lived experience and the author’s own writing to develop a methodology for moving toward wholeness by writing and speaking the truth of internal adoptee experiences.
This series represents a forum for important issues that do and will affect how learning and teaching are thought about and practised. All educational venues and situations are undergoing change because of information and communications technology, globalization and paradigmatic shifts in determining what knowledge is valued. Our scope includes matters in primary, secondary and tertiary education as well as community-based informal circumstances. Important and significant differences between information and knowledge represent a departure from traditional educational offerings heightening the need for further and deeper understanding of the implications such opportunities have for influencing what happens in schools, colleges and universities around the globe. An inclusive approach helps attend to important current and future issues related to learners, teachers and the variety of cultures and venues in which educational efforts occur. We invite forward-looking contributions that reflect an international comparative perspective illustrating similarities and differences in situations, problems, solutions and outcomes.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the Acquisitions Editor, Athina Dimitriou.

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

Please send book proposals to the series editors, Shibao Guo and Yan Guo, or the Aquisitions Editor, Athina Dimitriou.
“Curriculum” is an expansive term; it encompasses vast aspects of teaching and learning. Curriculum can be defined as broadly as “the content of schooling in all its forms” (English, Fenwick W., Deciding What to Teach & Test: Developing, Aligning, and Leading the Curriculum. Thousand Oaks, CA: Corwin, 2010, p. 4), and as narrowly as a lesson plan. Complicating matters is the fact that curricula are often organized to fit particular time frames. The incompatible and overlapping notions that curriculum involves everything that is taught and learned in a particular setting and that this learning occurs in a limited time frame reveal the nuanced complexities of curriculum studies.
Constructing Knowledge provides a forum for systematic reflection on the substance (subject matter, courses, programs of study), purposes, and practices used for bringing about learning in educational settings. Of concern are such fundamental issues as: What should be studied? Why? By whom? In what ways? And in what settings? Reflection upon such issues involves an inter-play among the major components of education: subject matter, learning, teaching, and the larger social, political, and economic contexts, as well as the immediate instructional situation. Historical and autobiographical analyses are central in understanding the contemporary realties of schooling and envisioning how to (re)shape schools to meet the intellectual and social needs of all societal members. Curriculum is a social construction that results from a set of decisions; it is written and enacted and both facets undergo constant change as contexts evolve.
This series aims to extend the professional conversation about curriculum in contemporary educational settings. Curriculum is a designed experience intended to promote learning. Because it is socially constructed, curriculum is subject to all the pressures and complications of the diverse communities that comprise schools and other social contexts in which citizens gain self-understanding.
Queer Studies in Education aims to publish research in queer and trans studies in education with an intentional focus on intersectional analyses. As such, volumes in this series take seriously the ways that racism, coloniality, ableism, xenophobia, misogyny, and other systems of oppression are entangled and intersect with cisheterosexism and cisheteropatriarchy. This series aims to publish research that advances the fields of queer studies and trans studies in education, forwarding new theoretical frameworks, novel methodologies, and work that revisit and renovates existing models. The series also aims to publish research that is relevant and useful for practitioners, educators, activists, and communities. As such, authors in the series are asked to keep in mind both academic and non-academic audiences. The series publishes work across various research methodologies and frameworks. The focus on education is broad, and specifically includes early childhood education, PK-12, postsecondary education, adult education, informal community education, and nontraditional sites of education.
