"Our" View on the "Other": Issues regarding School Textbooks
Olsson, Susanne
British Journal of Religious Education, v32 n1 p41-48 Jan 2010
Studies of the image of Muslims or "the Other" in general have been done to a certain extent by Western scholars showing that stereotyped images have been prevalent. In the case of Islamic studies, the long tradition of Orientalist scholarship is a clear example of this, but, as researchers have shown, generalisations and stereotypes are still apparent in school textbooks. This article discusses some general and problematic areas that pertain to textbooks. The focus is on what critical issues we need to take into consideration when discussing or performing textbook production and how we can think about these.
