Critical Ethnographic Research in Education is a Routledge blue book series grounded in explorations of the political economy and politics of education. Today humanity is pushed to the brink by authoritative control, global extinction, urban implosion, rampant inequality; and state-sponsored violence and silencing for those who question and/or dare to live outside the norm. This series offers a place to disrupt and displace hierarchical, dominant discourses in education theory and policy. Multidisciplinary, theoretical perspectives and voices are investigated. The experiences of those on the margins of knowledge production are foregrounded. In pushing back against the forces that diminish critical thought, a wide range of immersive methods are featured. Sought out are interviews/observations, oral histories, counter stories, multi-site, and multi-species approaches and looped field techniques. Also included are those working at the intersections of meaning across communication platforms, such as digital media, film, audio, and graphics. The goal is to decolonize, democratize, and think differently. This emphasis is more crucial than ever given life on the ground. Studies with data gathered in North America or worldwide are sought out. Edited volumes are additionally included in this series.
