This book represents a millennial point of reflection in the history of educational studies and its future. The trajectory of educational studies is especially interesting due to shifts that have occurred concerning knowledge and identity - particularly how they encounter one another. The chapters are largely drawn from presentations made at the American Educational Studies Association. They reflect educational studies on the ground as practiced by members in the field and represent the future of educational studies - the redefinition of disciplines, the link between ideas and practice, and a critique of the assumptions within taken-for-granted knowledge. The Future of Educational Studies provides an excellent overview of educational studies and current examples of the range of work being done in the field.
