Refugee Community Oral Histories: Issues in Pedagogy and Curriculum Development
Gabriel, John
Teaching in Higher Education, v13 n3 p265-277 Jun 2008
The article explores a community-based project documenting the histories of 15 refugee communities in London with a major exhibition at the Museum of London. While the focus of the article is concerned with the educational aspects of the project, an important argument suggests the inseparability of educational and pedagogic issues from a wider set of political influences. The article begins with an overview of the Refugee Community Histories Project, followed by a more detailed discussion of the postgraduate courses that made up its educational component and concludes with a reflection on the tensions arising from the differing priorities and interests of the project's participants. (Contains 10 notes.)
