Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Want to learn how to navigate race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation and physical/mental ability in the classroom or workplace? Here is a selection of titles that offer guidance through research, case studies, strategies, activites and more.

Family Studies

Family life has become increasingly complex in modern times. We have titles that examine new and different family structures such as LATs or living apart together, as well as LGBTQ parenting; titles that investigate the rise of single/lone parenting, the increasing fluidity of gender roles, and the revitalization of traditional indigenous family knowledge and practices.
