Pre-departure information

New in Sweden

The course introduces the participants to the study of cultural diversity in society and the impact this has upon our understandings of education. By building on literature influenced by sociology, anthropology, philosophy and political perspectives the course gives the students an interdisciplinary approach to discussions about the place and the role of education in a pluralistic society. The course deals with questions related to race, ethnicity, language, religion, and gender from the perspective of democracy and human rights. The course also examines questions about diversity in education, such as critical multiculturalism, interculturalism and anti-racism, and their underlying principles. Examples will be drawn from both Swedish and international contexts.
The course combines lecturing, seminars, discussions and group work with compulsory assignments. Mandatory attendance (at least 70%) applies to seminars and group work. Absence is supplemented with a written assignment. For details see the course description.
