Communities of Activism

Black Women, Higher Education and the Politics of Representation

"An important and much needed book that brings together activists, practitioners and academics across generations to rethink education for social change. Essentially, this is a book about radical care and how Black women are repairers of the breach."

Akwugo Emejulu, Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick

Educational Inequality

Closing the Gap

"A timely and important book that provides positive messages and a rich evidence base to inform and guide school leaders, teachers and policy makers. It should become essential reading for all concerned to address the equity gap in student achievement with well founded research and evidence based approaches."

Pamela Sammons, Emeritus Professor, Department of Education, University of Oxford, and Emeritus Fellow Jesus College

Learning for a Co-operative World

Education, Social Change and the Co-operative College

“…a treasury of exciting ideas, historical examples and emerging possibilities…should be read by everyone with an interest in development education that is adequate to our present interesting times.”

Keri Facer, Professor of Educational and Social Futures, University of Bristol

"With the creation of fragmented and pluralist societies we face numerous challenges to what collective identity might mean. Art offers us many possibilities to unite. This critical book expertly begins but does not try to finish the significant challenge to art educators everywhere."

Professor Ross W. Prior, Faculty of Arts, University of Wolverhampton, Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy
