We are delighted to announce that Professor Michael Crossley’s highly successful Symposium series Bristol Papers in Education: Comparative and International Studies, established in the 1990s, will now be published by Bristol University Press.
The series has been updated with a new name and additional series editors, and will retain the Symposium series commitment to publishing high-quality research, emphasising work that bridges theory, policy and practice, supporting early career researchers and the publication of studies led by researchers in and from the global South.
Series Editors: Michael Crossley, Leon Tikly, Angeline M. Barrett, and Julia Paulson, University of Bristol, UK
Call for book proposals
The series aims to critically engage with education and international development from a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective. As such it welcomes submissions on topics including, but not limited to:
- Social, epistemic, environmental and transitional justice viewed with a comparative sensibility;
- Sustainable development in the postcolonial world;
- Globalisation and the changing governance of education;
- Quality education for all, international agendas and global development goals;
- Education, peace, conflict and memory production;
- Environmental uncertainty, education and small island developing states (SIDS);
- Educational research capacity building and the co-production of knowledge;
- Theories, challenges and dilemmas of education policy transfer;
- Education policy and implementation;
- • Pedagogy and professional development;
- Language, learning and culture.
We have a global geographic focus combined with specific interests in African, South American, Asian and SIDS contexts where we are currently working in collaboration with local partners.
We are now proactively commissioning proposals for the series. We welcome proposals for single or co-authored monographs, edited collections or ‘Shorts’ (academic work of between 30-50,000 words).
