Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

"National ideologies/regional realities in the role of language, culture, and education (in)equality"

Exploring different past and present contexts where cultural and language differences have affected school students' education.

What should educational institutions strive for in terms of cultural and language goals: following international organization recommendations of teaching in the local language for as long as possible, teaching all subcultures for the national level, the international level, or even towards incorporating migrants' needs more?

This course hopes to gain an awareness of struggles in the classroom due to cultural and linguistic differences. It hopes to do this by analyzing several case studies from different contexts, past and present, to try to answer this broad question.
