Peace Education through Bilingual Children's Literature Written in Arabic and in Hebrew: Different Narratives, Different Socialization
Zamir, Sara
Journal of Peace Education, v9 n3 p265-275 2012
The aim of this research has been to evaluate the contribution of the emerging Israeli genre of bilingual literature, Arabic and Hebrew, to peace education. Since Israeli society is a multicultural one comprised of two nations, Arabs and Jews who live in an environment of conflict, one must regard those textbooks as political socialization agents. The content analysis procedure, based on Salomon's typology about peace education, revealed that most Arabic-Hebrew texts try to convey to young readers merely the ideas of coexistence and harmony rather than the notion of peace education in regions of intense conflicts alongside agonizing and painful costs.
