Narrative & Experience in Multicultural Education by JoAnn Phillion

Book Description

Narrative and Experience in Multicultural Education explores the untapped potential that narrative and experiential approaches have for understanding multicultural issues in education. The research featured in the book reflects an exciting wave of new social science thinking about human experience. The studies focus on the lives of students, teachers, parents, and communities, and bring forward experiences seldom discussed in the literature. The authors are diverse and their inquiries are far ranging in terms of content, ethnic groups studied, geographic locations and other contexts. The special quality of the work in this book that distinguishes it from other work in multicultural education is the emphasis on understanding experience and transforming this understanding into social and educational significance. This work tends to be less prescriptive and more intensely focused on the meaning of experience from the perspective of individuals and groups. Narrative and Experience in Multicultural Education directly addresses this change both conceptually for thinking about possibilities for multiculturalism, and methodologically for the study of multiculturalism.
