New Issue Available: Special Issue: Reckoning and Reconciliation: Decolonizing Social Work Education

Dear readers of Intersectionalities: A Global Journal of Social Work Analysis, Research, Polity, and Practice.  

We are very pleased and immensely proud to announce the publication of the Special Issue entitled Reckoning and Reconciliation: Decolonizing Social Work Education guest edited by Dr. Donna Jeffery, Dr. Billie Allan, and Dr. Rhonda Hackett from the School of Social Work, University of Victoria. 

This special issue gathers contributions from an impressive range of Canadian and international scholars in the fields of decolonization and Indigenization in Social Work education. It is also the culmination of over a year of collaborative work between the guest editors, the authors, and the Journal’s editorial team.  

As Jeffery, Allan and Hackett state in the introduction to the issue, “Decolonizing social work education is an ongoing process, not a destination…, but rather a new set of relationships we are seeking to engage in with ourselves, each other, our students and in social work research, literature, policy, and practice.” This special issue seeks to make an important contribution to this ongoing process, to knowledge and to current debates concerning the role of social work in decolonization.  

We invite you to peruse this special issue by visiting the Intersectionalities’ website at: 

We hope these articles will enrich your research, teaching, as well as your work in and with communities.  

Yours truly, 

Dr. Teresa Macías
