We are delighted to share with you the news of our new monthly series. In this series we ask higher education scholars – both junior and senior – on some recent interesting literature they have read that they would like to share with you.

These tips can be about journal articles, book chapters or whole books, some of these can be recent, some of them can be classics that perhaps should be highlighted again.

What will make them different from other more traditional book reviews is that they are focused on both old and new literature the contributors would like to highlight, not only recent publications. We really want to focus on the literature that has stood out for all the right reasons. Of course, these reasons can be both conceptual or empirical or something completely different. What we hope is that the book or article gave some new exciting insights. Our only criteria for the reviews is that it has to be brief and say something about (a) the content of the book or article; and (b) why this was interesting.

We hope that this can be of relevance both to Hedda students who are learning to navigate in the world of higher education, our alumni who work with higher education, and anyone else with an interest in the field.

Our first reviews will be coming up already on Monday – so be sure to check back here!

If you read something really interesting lately that you would just love to share by contributing to this series, please do take contact, we would love to hear from you!
