Have you ever dreamed of becoming a published author? Come and join the PRISM editorial team and find out how it all works. We’ll also be celebrating the launch of the journal’s second volume and our recently achieved international status.

Volume 2 Issue 1 is dedicated to the topic of education and social class: an important topic for those who live and work in Blackburn (one of the top 10 most deprived boroughs in England). The journal is pleased to announce that both Diane Reay (Professor of Education, University of Cambridge) and Henry Giroux (Professor of Education, McMaster University) have contributed exclusive articles to the special issue. These articles - and more excellent pieces of research and scholarship - will be available on the day.

The event will take place on Wednesday 17th October, 3–4pm in the UCBC Lecture Theatre.
