Citizenship and Democratic Education in the Time of Rising Nationalism: Theory, Research, and Practice on March 22, 2020 in Miami, FL.
The objective of this workshop is to offer an interactive learning space for attendees to engage with experts on the issues related to citizenship and democratic education in societies and communities where the political landscape is determined by the growing influence of radical nationalist, anti-immigrant, or ethno-centrist sentiments. By the end of the workshop, the attendees will be able to a) get a critical insight on the tendencies in democratic and citizenship education in the new environment and b) develop skills, knowledge, and understanding of specific research and teaching techniques to address issues of democratic citizenship, race, or nationalism in public or private schools and particularly in teacher education. The deliberately broad theme of the workshop allows for a wide range of topics that address all aspects of citizenship and democratic education, including the role and place of citizenship and democratic education in new conditions; new forms, methods, and techniques in citizenship and democratic education; and the role of changing contexts and agencies in challenging anti-democratic tendencies.
