Student Activism in the Academy
Its Struggles and Promise

In an era of corporate media and “alternative facts”, academics committed to justice cannot simply rely on disseminating new knowledge, but must step out of the ivory tower and enter the streets as activists. The Activist Academic serves as a guide for merging activism into academia. 

Following the journey of two professors, the book offers stories, frameworks and methods for how scholars can marry their academic selves—involved in scholarship, teaching and service—with their activist commitments to justice, while navigating the lived realities of raising families and navigating office politics. This volume invites academics across disciplines to enter into a dialogue about how to take knowledge to the streets.               

Perfect for courses in: Higher Education and Society; Foundations of Higher Education; Legal Issues in Higher Education; College Student Development Theory; Academic Issues in Higher Education.

Breaking Free
The Life and Times of Peter McLaren, Radical Educator
Peter McLaren
Illustrated by Miles Wilson

From Myers Education Press—the publisher who brought you such titles as A School with a View, Childhoods, and Student Activism in the Academy—comes a story or rather…a series of stories that are as out of this world as its protagonist. Long before he became a renowned Critical Studies professor at Chapman University, Peter McLaren was just another Toronto native trying to survive in a conservative working-class family. His father fought in WWII while his mother put food on the table, but—like his father—Peter was caught in his own battles dodging abusive teachers and navigating through an academic roller-coaster. Sure, his home life may be ripped from a '50s sitcom on the surface; but his background and the rest of his life from that point on was far from one…or maybe it was. This book chronicles Peter’s cross-country climb up the educational ladder as a teacher steeped in the school system, his encounters with various key players in history—from the Black Panthers to Timothy Leary, and everything else in between.

Perfect for courses such as: History of Education, Race and Ethnic Studies, Sociology of Education, Social Justice and Education, Democracy and Civics, Community Engagement, Policy Studies, and Critical Race Theory.

Let's Chat—Cultivating Community University Dialogue
A Coffee Table Textbook on Partnerships

2019 SPE Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention

From the home of the Paulo Freire Democratic Project and non-profit community organization Padres Unidos, the Chapman University Padres Unidos Partnership presents this truly unique coffee table textbook, Let’s Chat: Cultivating Community University Dialogue – A Coffee Table Textbook on Partnerships. The volume presents a collection of community stories, concepts and analyses that highlight the journey of border crossings between two co-existing neighbors: a non-profit community organization and a university. Stories from community residents and faculty members represent how they disrupted the barriers that typically divide us by reconceptualizing how universities and communities can work together to reshape the intellectual landscape and reconfigure power differentials.

Written with and by the community, this book represents a break-away genre that privileges the “voices of the people” (Freire), accompanied by academic voices, in a format that is accessible, aesthetic and attractive to both community and university audiences. Cafecitos punctuate each chapter to elicit dialogue, reflection and action towards defining and developing community university partnerships.

This book will be useful to:
• academics interested in partnerships, public pedagogy, and community-based research
• students involved in community engagement/service learning
• community organizations
• immigrant families who reveal their wisdom in stories about self, others, and community building within the Chapman University Padres Unidos partnership

Let’s Chat presents valuable content in a new and unique format that makes it perfect for courses in: Service in Action; Leadership, Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility; Community-Based Research Methods; Introduction to Asset-Based Community Development; Community Service Internship; Community Leadership of Tomorrow; Becoming and Agent of Change; Cultural Diversity in American Education; Diversity and Equity in Education; Social and Philosophical Aspects of Education; Education and Economic Development.

Perfect for courses such as: Service in Action Practicum, Leadership, Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility, Community-Based Research Methods, Introduction to Asset-Based Community Development, Community Service Internship, Community Leadership of Tomorrow, Becoming an Agent of Change, Cultural Diversity in American Education, Diversity and Equity in Education, Social and Philosophical Aspects of Education, and Education and Economic Development.
