deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

Our previous books, Poetry and Pedagogy across the Lifespan (2018) and Poetry and Sustainability in Education (forthcoming 2021/22), explore poetry’s crucial role in educating learners of all age groups to meet the challenges faced as we navigate current and future crises. While both of these volumes provide theoretical approaches and applicable tools and methods for teaching poetry in numerous contexts, the essays are heavily weighted towards European/North American poets and/or Western educational institutions. This new volume seeks to invite perspectives from around the globe, centering on comparativist or non-Western paradigms and practices.
