Book Announcement: Erasing Invisibility, Inequity and Social Injustice of Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent

Erasing Invisibility, Inequity and Social Injustice of Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent now available from Cambridge Scholars Publishing

9781443894975
Hardback, pp317, £64.99 / $109.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Erasing Invisibility, Inequity and Social Injustice of Africans in the Diaspora and the Continent, edited by Omiunota N. Ukpokodu and Peter Otiato Ojiambo.

This volume engages the reader in understanding past and contemporary critical issues in African scholarship, both in the diaspora and on the continent, that have been marginalized, unexamined, and under-researched, and proposes ways to make them visible. The book is timely as it imagines and reimagines scholarship on Africans in the diaspora and on the continent. It is bold, and authentically unpacks African immigrants’ individual and collective cultural, educational, social, and institutional experiences, especially in the context of US Pk-12 schools as they navigate and negotiate transnational spaces regarding identity and shifting positionalities. The editors and contributors, who are themselves African immigrants, exemplify their spirits of Sankofa as they look back to their roots in order to give back to their “Motherland” by fighting for the visibility, equity and social justice of Africans in the diaspora and on the continent. The book proposes critical and insightful ideas that educators, researchers, policy makers, social and human services, and community leaders will find valuable. Continue reading

Hardback, pp309, £64.99 / $109.95

Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Fractures and Disruptions in Children’s Literature, edited by Ana Margarida Ramos, Sandie Mourão and Maria Teresa Cortez.

In March 2015, the eleventh edition of The Child and the Book Conference was organized at the University of Aveiro in Portugal. The conference was related to the theme of fracture and disruption in children’s and young adult literature. This publication provides not only a synthesis of the main reflections, but also a starting point for understanding the issues of fracture and disruption within children’s and young adult literature. The volume gathers texts from consolidated figures within the field of research in Children’s Literature, as well as contributions from junior researchers, creating bridges and dialogue between both generations and critical and theoretical approaches. It includes chapters on violence, war, sexuality and politics, discussion around formal-stylistic perspectives, analysis of fringe works and hybrid literary forms as well as the issue of audience and the crossover universe. Special reference should be given to the inclusion of contributions from lesser-known countries and literatures such as Brazil, Italy, Norway, Poland, and Portugal. The volume will be of interest to children’s literature specialists, graduate and post-graduate students, librarians, and mediators of reading. Continue reading
