Children and Interculturality in Education

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review


While current critical unthinking and rethinking of interculturality in education (research) has primarily focused on adults’ experiences of diversity, this original book suggests turning our attention seriously to children. This requires interrogating both the notions of children and interculturality, taking into account less Western-centric and adult-centric perspectives to break down some myths and stereotypes about them. The book aims at developing the reader’s criticality and reflexivity about the topic, providing them with original and concrete tools derived from e.g. critical and reflexive interculturality, media studies and anti-racism education. Recognizing that different positions concerning interculturality in education (research) are worthy of consideration, the authors also urge us to take children’s own perspectives into account systematically and to give ample space to play. The book was written by three teacher educators specialising in interculturality in education and is targeted at parents, caregivers, teachers, teacher educators, researchers and policy makers.
