Change Matters, a new book written by leading scholars committed to social justice in English education, was coedited by IUP English professor sj Miller.

Change Matters provides researchers, university instructors, and preservice and inservice teachers with a framework that pivots social justice toward policy. The chapters in the volume detail rationales about generating social justice theory in what Freire calls the revolutionary process, through essays that support research about teaching about the intersections between teaching for social change and teaching about social injustices, directing us toward the significance of enacting social justice methodologies.

The text unpacks how education, spiritual beliefs, ethnicity, age, gender, ability, social class, political beliefs, marital status, sexual orientation, gender expression, language, national origin, and education intersect with the principles by which we live and the multiple identities that we embody as we move from space to space.
