Django Paris named editor of book series on culturally sustaining pedagogies

August 5, 2019

Django Paris, director of the University of Washington’s Banks Center for Educational Justice, will serve as editor of a new book series on culturally sustaining pedagogies recently announced by Teachers College Press.

In a new podcast, Paris, holder of the James A. & Cherry A. Banks Professorship of Multicultural Education, discusses the new series, which will offer teacher candidates, practicing educators, graduate students and scholars with books dedicated to educational settings engaged in sustaining Indigenous, Black, Latinx, Asian and Pacific Islander young people, families and communities.

The first books in the series are expected to be published in late 2020 and into 2021.

“The series will be defined by its coherent focus on the strengths and wisdom of young people, families, elders, communities and educators who use education — in pre-K through college classrooms, across content areas, in community organizations and in peer and family settings — as a tool of positive social transformation and revitalization,” said Paris, who previously co-edited "Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies: Teaching and Learning for Justice in a Changing World" in 2017.

Those interested in submitting a book proposal can contact Emily Spangler at Teachers College Press.
