Summary
    The essays in The Social and Cultural Foundations of Education: A Reader initiate conversations on fundamental cultural and social topics that are also integral issues in education today. Each selection was chosen because it offers a unique perspective that encourages readers to think about familiar subject matter in new ways.

    The topics addressed are as diverse as the authors. They include the role that race and racism still play in society, how the climate crisis is being dealt with, the fluid nature of gender and sexuality, and how popular culture offers profoundly important representations into who and what we are as a culture today.

    Designed to shine a light on present-day dilemmas, The Social and Cultural Foundations of Education: A Reader presents work that may well join the lineage of seminal writing in the discipline. The anthology was designed as a companion text for undergraduate courses in educational foundations, and is also an excellent supplemental reader for classes in social and cultural anthropology and sociology.

    Joshua Diem earned his Ph.D. at the University of North Carolina. Dr. Diem is now an associate clinical professor at the University of Miami where he teaches courses on the social and cultural foundations of education, education and race, education and pop culture, education policy, and qualitative research methods. Currently, his research focuses on domestic violence, specifically on men who batter. Dr. Diem hopes to add to the literature reconceptualizing health and sex education in public schools as well as to the voices calling for frank discussions of dating violence and gender inequality.
