PALGRAVE MACMILLAN is pleased to announce the launching of a new book series, Postcolonial Studies in Education with Antonia Darder, Anne Hickling-Hudson, and Peter Mayo. This series focuses on the intersection of education with colonial, neocolonial and postcolonial issues, theories and ideologies. Exploring education as an important vehicle for both the inculcation of colonial ideologies and structures, and their unlearning, books will examine the nexus between culture, power, knowledges and histories in educational policy and practice, and the extent to which political movements have pursued the search for educational equity. Vital to this series is an engagement with the dynamic between language, literacies and cultures, deconstructing what is involved in the educational challenge to hegemonic languages and the promotion of local literacies, linguistic and cultural diversity, anti-racism and critical multiculturalism through teaching.
