Forum: Cultural Identity and (Dis)Continuities of Children of Immigrant Communities
Obsiye, Mohamed; Cook, Rachel
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v11 n4 p1061-1070 Dec 2016
Susan Harper's study centres on "funds of knowledge" as a pedagogical resource for the development of a science curriculum, drawing on Karen refugee parents' cultural knowledge and identity. She argues that engagement in this process helps the parent generation of this community to "rebuild their cultural resilience" and cope with the resettlement process (p. 43). Drawing on our own research with Somali, Sierra Leonean and Nigerian diaspora communities in London, the following article extends this discussion with a particular focus on the intricate intergenerational dynamics between children and their parents' generation in relation to cultural identity development though engagement with education. [This is a response paper to Susan Harper's article, "Keystone Characteristics That Support Cultural Resilience in Karen Refugee Parents" (EJ1121581).]
