February 10, 2017 - 11:00am to 12:30pm
University of Washington Club, Yukon Pacific Room

Marcelo Suárez-Orozco of UCLA's School of Education & Information Studies and co-editor of the recently released book Global Migration, Diversity and Civic Education will speak in the University of Washington's Center for Multicultural Education Book Talk Series.

Mass migration and globalization are creating new and deep challenges to education systems the world over. In this volume, some of the world's leading researchers in multicultural education and immigration discuss critical issues related to cultural sustainability, structural inclusion, and social cohesion. In this book talk, Professor Suárez-Orozco will describe how global migration is forcing nation-states to reexamine and reinvent the ways in which they social-ize and educate diverse groups for citizenship and civic engagement. He will also address how schools can help migrant and immigrant groups attain the knowledge, values, and skills required to become fully participating citizens, while retaining important aspects of their home, community, languages, and culture.

Please RSVP by February 3 to centerme@uw.edu or 206-543-3386.
