Publisher: IGI Global

Subject Area: Education

Overview: The International Journal of Bias, Identity and Diversities in Education (IJBIDE) investigates critically the positioning of diverse individuals in formal and informal contexts of education – from kindergarten to adult education, but also lifelong learning. Diversities here refer to different identity markers such as ethnicity, religion, gender, social class, disabilities and language. IJBIDE is clearly positioned within a non-essentialist, non-culturalist perspective. IJBIDE also aims to promote original research methods by linking up macro- and micro-approaches. The journal is fully blind peer reviewed by the best experts in the field and publishes empirical and conceptual research and case studies from around the world.
