HSSSJE takes seriously the idea that the humanities and social sciences as disciplinary orientations, have much to offer education broadly defined, as well as schooling in its most restricted sense. HSSSJE brings together faculty and students engaged in research with a disciplinary focus. It brings together the many sub-fields of the related disciplines and other relevant and cognate multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary fields such as sociology, economics, anthropology, literature and religious studies, disability studies, gender and feminist studies, critical race theory and studies of empire). We provide our students with a solid and broad education in the humanities, social sciences and social justice education.

- Critical race and indigenous studies in education
