The research we publish
The more we know, the more effectively we can act
Knowledge drives progress, and one action we are taking is sharing validated scholarly readings and resources on racial identities, ethnicities, class, and gender topics.
We cannot change the world on our own, but we are willing to put expertise at the fingertips of those that share our desire to do so. We have curated some of our relevant books and journals content in this area, much of it free to view or open access. Within the collection, we share a wide range of validated scholarly content on racism and its prevention, on social and economic justice, on related educational resources, and their effects on society as a whole. Our editorial teams will continue to collaborate with scholars and experts to organize and publish an expanded reading list.
Educating for Black Lives
Our education team has developed Educating for Black Lives which brings together readings and resources for antiracist education.
With Educating for Black Lives, Routledge Education reaffirms its longstanding commitment to social justice and racial equality at this critical moment in history. Created in collaboration with authors, Educating for Black Lives makes freely available some of Routledge Education’s most powerful and pertinent material as well as a curated collection of additional resources. This material is designed to support educators across contexts—classrooms, communities, homes, workshops, and more.
“Educators need timely, informative, and engaging resources to teach effectively about institutional racism and structural inequality that Covid-19 and the recent deaths of African Americans in police encounters have made explicit. Educating for Black Lives: Readings and Resources for Antiracist Education consists of discerning, incisive, and informative resources that educators can use to enrich and enliven their teaching, challenge their students, and motivate them to learn.”
