Commemorating the 40th anniversary of Pedagogy of the Oppressed, the new book series Critical Pedagogy Today provides a range of incisive overviews and applications of Critical Pedagogy across fields and disciplines. Building on the work of Paulo Freire, the series reinvigorates his legacy and provides educators with an array of tools for questioning contemporary practices and forging new pedagogical methods.
We are looking for books which can be used to enhance the existing literature in Critical Pedagogy, critical theory, and radical education. Keeping in mind the interdisciplinary nature of Critical Pedagogy, include the intended audience for your book. Books should be approximately 60,000 words, and proposals can be sent to: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
