Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Latin American countries have experienced the challenge of multicultural education since their inception. Studying the evolution of multicultural education in Latin America can inform instructional practices and policies worldwide. Yet, research on multicultural educational policies in Latin American hardly ever infiltrates US and European canons. This presentation delves into the ways in which the Latin American framework of interculturalidad (Godenzi Alegre, 1996; López, 2009; Moya, 2009; Zariquiey, 2003) has informed educational policies and practices in Latin America.
It explores the role of education in Latin American multiethnic and plurilingual societies; particularly, it looks at their struggle in the contestation of national imaginaries built on colonial and fixed nation-state boundaries.The presentation will start with a brief historical overview of indigenous and colonial education in Latin America, followed by a genesis of the concept of interculturalidad . It will then extend the conversation to the cases of Belize, Costa Rica, and Cuba. Through a multilevel analysis and postcolonial lens, the presenter will outline the differences and similarities in the approach of each country to multicultural education. The presenter will then link the features identified in each country to the larger Latin American and global context, highlighting current concerns of minoritized ethnocultural groups with a focus on immigration trends, political issues and citizenship education. Finally, the presenter will provide suggestions as to how current Latin American multicultural education policies and practices can better become vehicles for solidarity and liberation in the three countries studied.
