Imagining Postnationalism: Arts, Citizenship Education, and Arab American Youth
El-Haj, Thea Renda Abu
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v40 n1 p1-19 Mar 2009
This article explores an Arab American community arts organization as a site for promoting youth civic participation and social activism. Studying a citizenship education project outside the school walls, and focusing on the arts as a medium for this work, foregrounds the role of the symbolic for engaging youth as active participants in democratic society. The article also examines the symbolic political argument for postnational citizenship that the young participants articulated through a film they produced.
