*Call for chapter proposals – *
Proposed book: *Race, Religion, Culture and Education in the Caribbean*
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for chapters
in a forthcoming book entitled *Race, Religion, Culture and Education in
The proposed book will focus on the relationship between race, religion,
culture and education in the Anglophone Caribbean. It will investigate the
crossroads between ethnic diversity (anthropology) and teaching and
learning in the region. The edited volume will seek to address the
following questions: How, why and where do various ethnic groups learn,
perform and behave differently? How is schooling organized in various
ethnic-based educational institutions? How are dissimilar cultures
transmitted covertly and overtly in schools? What insights can anthropology
give into practical problems encountered in teaching and learning? The
book will also explore several educational and anthropological theories
that provide lenses for understanding the intersection between sociology,
cultural studies and education.
*Target audience: *Academic instructors, administrators, advisors,
counsellors, and policy and programme specialists in high schools, colleges
and universities in the multi-ethnic Caribbean
