The University of Washington Center for Multicultural Education will host its 21st Book Talk featuring "Citizenship Education and Global Migration: Implications for Theory, Research, and Teaching."

This groundbreaking book describes theory, research, and practice that can be used in civic education courses and programs to help students from marginalized and minoritized groups in nations around the world attain a sense of structural integration and political efficacy within their nation-states, develop civic participation skills, and reflective cultural, national, and global identities. This book describes the problems that 18 nations around the world are experiencing trying to create and implement effective civic education programs for students from diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic groups and case studies of effective ways that teachers and other educators are working to resolve these problems.

Presenters are:

  • Kogila Moodley is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, where she was the first holder of the David Lam Chair in Multiculturalism.
  • Walter C. Parker is Professor of Social Studies Education and Adjunct Professor of Political Science at the University of Washington, Seattle. He studies civic education and global education in schools and the depth-breadth problem in curriculum development.
  • James A. Banks is the Kerry and Linda Killinger Endowed Chair in Diversity Studies and Founding Director of the Center for Multicultural Education at the University of Washington, Seattle. His research focuses on multicultural education and diversity and citizenship education in a global context.
