Reviews

“This collection is energising reading. It provides readers with plenty of reasons to be upbeat about the vibrancy and diversity of gender and sexuality education research and practice. The collection is novel in its format, incorporating more traditional research informed chapters alongside narratives from emerging and established researchers regarding how they carved out careers in the field. It is also packed with useful resources for qualitative and quantitative researchers. Going beyond the research community, the editors also draw on the expertise of workers and stakeholders who implement, commission and collaborate on research in this area. This “love letter” to and from the field is a timely intervention.” (Professor Mary Lou Rasmussen, The Australian National University, Australia)
