April 2017

AERA will publish two books this month with groundbreaking scholarship in critical areas of education research. The two volumes, Comparing Ethnographies: Local Studies of Education Across the Americas and Citizenship Education and Global Migration: Implications for Theory, Research, and Teaching, emerged from AERA Education Research Conferences.

The two books will be available at the AERA exhibit booth at the 2017 Annual Meeting in San Antonio. Online pre-ordering is now available. E-book editions will be published this May.

“I could not be more pleased that AERA is producing these two new volumes with a strong international focus,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “Each volume fulfills AERA’s goal of serving as a publisher of books of importance to the education research community worldwide.”

Comparing Ethnographies: Local Studies of Education Across the Americas, edited by Kathryn Anderson-Levitt (University of Michigan, Dearborn, and University of California, Los Angeles) and Elsie Rockwell (Centro de Investigación y de Estudios Avanzados del Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Mexico), demonstrates what education researchers can learn by comparing ethnographic studies of similar problems conducted by scholars in Latin America and “North America” (the United States and Canada). From the volume’s case studies, readers will learn how work done in other parts of the hemisphere can expand the boundaries of their own research and theorizing. 

The volume will be featured in a symposium on Friday, April 28, from 12:25 p.m. to 1:55 p.m. (Grand Hyatt San Antonio, Second Floor, Bowie C) and will include an introduction from the editors and commentary from Mary Elizabeth (Beth) Graue, University of Wisconsin, Madison, and Fabienne Doucet, New York University. At 3:00 p.m., Friday, April 28, the editors will give a short presentation at the AERA exhibit booth followed by a book signing.


Citizenship Education and Global Migration: Implications for Theory, Research, and Teaching, edited by James A. Banks (University of Washington, Seattle), describes theory, research, and practice that can be used in civic education courses and programs to help students from marginalized and minoritized groups in nations around the world attain a sense of structural integration and political efficacy within their nation-states, learn civic participation skills, and develop reflective cultural, national, and global identities. This book includes chapters that describe the problems that 18 nations around the world are experiencing in trying to create and implement effective civic education programs for students from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic groups. It offers case studies of effective ways that teachers and other educators are working to resolve these problems.

This volume will also be featured in a symposium on Friday, April 28, from 2:15 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. (Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Ballroom Level, Room 303 C) and will include an introduction from the editor and commentary from Gerard Postiglione, The University of Hong Kong. At 4:00 p.m., Friday, April 28, Dr. Banks will give a short presentation at the AERA exhibit booth followed by a book signing.
