Speaking expert to celebrity: Two calls for proposals

The age of communication that is upon us includes Twitter and Facebook, both of which are revolutionizing as well as merging the academic/scholarly world with the public and popular media. This is most apparent in the education reform debate. See below two CALLS for proposals (click titles for full information on each volume) to be published as traditional books that I hope will reflect the rising new voices of teachers, scholars, and contributors of all types who care about and seek democratic and emancipatory universal public education:

[Critical Studies in Democracy and Political Literacy series (Peter Lang USA), Paul Carr, Series Editor]
