Discourses and Identities in Contexts of Educational Change: Book Launch in Mexico City
Last night we teamed up with our friend and colleague, Judy Kalman, to launch the Spanish language edition of the book “Discourses and Identities in Contexts of Educational Change”, edited by Guadalupe López Bonilla and Carmen Pérez Fragoso.
Judy has just recently had a book, co-edited with Brian Street, come out here in Mexico: “Lectura, Escritura and Matemáticas como Prácticas Sociales: Diálogos con América Latina.”
The book we launched last night, for which I have written the Introduction chapter, will also shortly come out in English from Peter Lang Publishing. This book involves a complex collaboration between Mexican and US academics. Besides the editors, who have each contributed chapters, the contributors are Hugh Mehan, Nadia Khalil, César Morales, Elizabeth Birr Moje, Jim Gee, Ana Inés Heras, Judith Green, Alma Carrasco Altamarino, Rollin Ken Serna, Karen Englander and Guadalupe Tinajero Villavicencio.
As you can see, it was a happy occasion, and we felt honoured to be a part of it.
