XanEdu, a custom publishing company working with the higher education and K-12 markets and a part of the Scholarus learning portfolio of companies, and Lived Places Publishing, which specializes in readings exploring the intersection of social identity and place, have partnered to provide faculty with customizable collections of course readings that focus on bringing human experiences into the classroom.

Lived Places Publishing delivers course readings exploring the intersection of social identity and place.

Each college-level book in these curated collections focus on real human stories that enhance teaching of unique lived experiences of real people, written in a way to help educators introduce a topic and engage students through stories, multiple voices, and the experiences of people around the world.

Lived Places Publishing (LPP) specializes in interdisciplinary and subject-based collections in topics across academic curriculum – such as Black Studies, Gender Studies, Disability Studies, and Queer and LGBT+ Studies. LPP collections deliver thoughtful, concise course readings that help faculty illuminate the experience of social identity and the lived places we share. XanEdu combines that material in print or digital formats, with the flexibility to add, delete or re-mix content so faculty can customize and integrate with other materials to match course goals.

The initial collections offered via this new partnership include Black Women's Experiences, Black Family Experiences, Disability Studies, and Education Studies. These collections may be used as-is or customized with other books from the LPP catalog. Learn more about the collections and reach out for additional information at www.xanedu.com/lpp.
