Join Canadian Scholars for a virtual launch in celebration of the publication of Equity as Praxis in Early Childhood Education and Care on June 29, 2021 at 2:00 pm EST.

Register to sit in on a round table discussion with editors Zuhra Abawi, Ardavan Eizadirad, and Rachel Berman.

Equity as Praxis in Early Childhood Education and Care aims to map, deconstruct, and engage with different models of equity as they pertain to the early childhood education landscape in Ontario. Drawing on marginalized narratives of gender, race, Indigeneity, dis/ability and inclusion, and migration, immigration, and displacement, the authors discuss how to advance the field and make it more equitable for children, families, early childhood educators, and all other practitioners. By prompting readers to reflect on and critique their understandings of children, families, communities, and practices in the field, the authors seek to provide counternarratives to Eurocentric developmentalist hegemonies and an alternative strength-based approach to critical and transformative praxis.

We'll be giving away two copies of the book and providing a 20% discount code available to all attendees, valid on canadianscholars.com June 29 - July 2, 2021.
