Antiracism and Schools - Vol. 2

A booklet full of interesting and original resources experience-based, to guide teachers in the building of anti-racist activities and educational curricula for primary school pupils, inform and promote debate.


What is it about ?

After Volume 1 focusing on primary school pupils and dynamics, this second Volume of "Antirazzismo e scuole" ("Antiracism and schools") originates out of a research-action performed in secondary schools of the Veneto Region (Italy) concerning racism and related scenarios. It brings about reasonings and arguments to contrast racial phenomena also thanks to practical examples and tools, video-interviews and testimonials. Its final aim is to build a collective consciousness concerning racism and historical myths connected to nationality and ethnicity. The resources are meant to face everyday life discriminations via educational lenses, trying to provide for alternative narratives and possible solutions.

The research-action and the booklet were curated by by researchers A. Frisina, F. G. Farina, A. Surian for the Padova University Press, open access online.
