Experiences of discrimination through textbooks

At 22. and 23 September 2014, the international workshop Diversity Education and Textbooks: International Perspectives, organized by the Center for Educational Integration at the University of Hildesheim and the Georg Eckert Leibnitz Institute for International Textbook Research in Braunschweig, took place. The researchers come to the conclusion that, in addition to differentiated portrayals, clichés and prejudices in particular also appear in the books. According to Viola B. Georgi, professor of diversity education at the University of Hildesheim, the content of the books can be divisive and contribute to experiences of discrimination. As soon as we have more information available, we will put it online here.
