Bilingual Children's Literature as a Tool Reflecting Non-Reconciled and Reconciled Identities in the Ethiopian Community in Israel
Kalnisky, Esther; Baratz, Lea
Intercultural Education, v29 n1 p103-121 2018
This study investigates the manner in which new and veteran Ethiopian immigrant students in Israel perceive their identity by investigating their attitudes towards children's books written in both Hebrew and Amharic. Two major types of identity were revealed: (1) a non-reconciled identity that seeks to minimise the visibility of one's ethnic group. (2) A reconciled identity that incorporates the original ethnic identity and tries to reconcile it with the majority culture by experiencing both the Israeli and the Ethiopian identities.
