Peter Lang Publishing’s AESA 2013 Critics’ Choice Winners:
Educating for Democratic Consciousness. Counter-Hegemonic Possibilities
Edited by Ali A. Abdi & Paul R. Carr
Critical Studies in Democracy and Political Literacy; 3
Reviewers’ comments: “The guiding principles of education for democracy are clearly articulated and each chapter strategically connects theory and practice in a way that provides concluding recommendations for counter-hegemonic possibilities that can be realized in educational contexts.”
Critical Civic Literacy. A Reader
Edited by Joseph L. DeVitis
Reviewers’ comments: “This 21st century reader is a must-have for educational scholars who work toward enabling students to understand that the fundamental purpose of public schooling ought to be to develop the knowledges, habits, dispositions, and skills necessary for democracy to prosper.”
International Struggles for Critical Democratic Education
Edited by Matthew Knoester
Reviewers’ comments: “Knoester takes a hard look at the critical research paradigm and tradition in this book. Embracing a Freirean and Gramcian tradition of counter-hegemony on an international educational stage, he does not shy away from contradictions, dichotomies, and messy situations, but rather embraces struggle as he aims to broaden the scope of what we consider to be ‘research.’”
Hip Hop’s Li’l Sistas Speak. Negotiating Hip Hop Identities and Politics in the New South
By Bettina L. Love
Reviewers’ comments: “This book is an honest, thought-provoking, counter-hegemonic discussion that makes transparent the challenges and beauty of African American women and girls through a rare, first-hand look into their lives and everyday experiences.”
Sexualities in Education. A Reader
Edited by Erica R. Meiners & Therese Quinn
Reviewers’ comments: “Meiners’s and Quinn’s theoretically sound and complex analyses provide complex, diverse, and well-articulated perspectives across straight and LGBT and queer communities and contrasting and conflicting political agendas. It is an important addition to scholarship in sex education, LGBT studies, curriculum studies, and teacher education.”
Teaching College Students Communication Strategies for Effective Social Justice Advocacy
By Robert J. Nash, Richard Greggory Johnson III & Michele C. Murray
Black Studies and Critical Thinking; 23
Reviewers’ comments: “With the face of the student population in the Unites States of America’s colleges and universities rapidly changing in the 21st century, Nash, Johnson III, and Murray’s timely communication strategies for advocates of social justice is a welcome addition to the body of critical foundational higher literature in the field of higher education.”
Self-Regulated Learning. An Application of Critical Educational Psychology
By Stephen Vassallo
Educational Psychology; 15
Reviewers’ comments: “Vassallo explores the nuances of ‘self-regulated learning’ (SRL) from multidisciplinary and critical perspectives that challenge the more traditional approaches to understanding learning processes in the field of educational psychology.”
