Migration and Education
The research field of migration, education and media is diverse and heterogeneous. This conference, with an international, interdisciplinary and intersectional perspective, wants to bring together theoretical approaches explaining migration, theories of integration, acculturation and assimilation; theories on transnational migration in various contexts; as well as didactic fields of migration and diversity education and intercultural learning.
Furthermore, the role of media concerning migration processes and the interdependence of media and migration will be analysed. On one hand, it is intended to consider the question of the significance of different media for migrants; on the other hand, the representation of migration, migrants and diversity in the media will be investigated. Empirical and theoretical approaches to migration and the media will be linked with the field of media education and media didactics as well as diversity education.
Moreover, the hands-on pedagogical relevance of these concepts shall be analysed using examples of national and international teaching methodology for intercultural learning, migration and diversity education, as well as media education.
