A New Book of Interest

 

It is our pleasure to provide our readers with a link to recent book that we believe will be of great interest to you all: 

Mitchell & Moore (2015) Planetary Praxis and Pedagogy: Transdisciplinary Approaches to Environmental Sustainability. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, Boston and Taipei. 

As Mitchell and Moore note in their introduction, this book “aims away from fear and cynicism toward pedagogies of hope such as those envisioned by the Brazilian educator Paulo Freire (1970, 1999) throughout his time in the world. Also at the current juncture, the relatively unheralded rollout of the U.N.’s Decade of Education for Sustainable Development or DESD (2014), which began in 2005, has drawn to a close, and so we find ourselves less cautious in proposing such pedagogies as pathways for transformation” (p. 1).  We a greatly encouraged by this aim and therefore want to share this book with you.

Dr. Richard Mitchell and Dr. Shannon Moore have also edited a Special Issue on Social Justice in Child Youth and Family Studies for our journal. You may also find this to be of great interest and will find this issue in our archives at:

The IJCYFS Review

 

Dear Colleagues,

We have recently created a new blog space that we’re very excited about and we hope you’ll take the time to check it out. The IJCYFS Review has been designed to offer an experimental space for lively, critical and topical conversations related to the fields of childhood, youth, and family studies. We especially encourage submissions that extend upon, or offer generative critiques of, articles published in the open access International Journal of Child Youth and Family Studies.
