Where: AEF, 49 Whitehall, London SW1A 2BX
Date: 14th March 2018
Time: 18:30-20:30


  • Dr Richard Race, Editor and Author, University of Roehampton
  • Prof Shirley R. Steinberg, Author, University of Calgary


The book provides a forum - like this event and the ones to follow - to keep multicultural dialogues in education audible, visual and evolving. The rationale for more dialogue on cultural diversity and multicultural education looks even more important when we look at wider domestic and international events. The idea behind the edited book was to encourage more socially inclusive and equitable debates that address contemporary issues in education. The target audience is education and the wider social sciences in both domestic and international contexts. The book's content goes beyond undergraduate and postgraduate students to teachers and professional practitioners and can be used as both a teaching and learning resource. We expect multicultural dialogues in education to continue before, during and after this event within this and wider networks who advocate continuing dialogues and multicultural educational pedagogy.
