Mistrik, Erich; Haapanen, Satu; Heikkinen, Hannu; Jazudek, Roman; Ondruskova, Natasa; Rasanen, Rauni
This book seeks to introduce readers to the concept of multicultural education. The book explains the inevitability of multicultural education in today's world, looks for its possibilities, and shows its advantages and limitations. Its text is first of all aimed at university students, but it should also be of general interest. The book is the result of a project financially and organizationally supported by the Jan Hus Educational Foundation, aimed at building foundations for multicultural education in Slovakia, and carried out with the cooperation of the University of Oulu in Finland. Chapters are in both Slovak and English. Following an introduction, chapters in the book are: (1) "What Is Culture?"; (2) "Functions of Culture"; (3) "Stratification of Culture"; (4) "Cultural Tradition"; (5) "Cultural Identity"; (6) "Semiotic Systems in Culture"; (7) "What Is Multicultural Education?"; (8) "Philosophical Approaches to Multicultural Education"; (9) "Multicultural Education as a Synthesis"; (10) "A Role of Art in Multicultural Education"; (11) "Multicultural Education and European Dimension"; and (12) "Preparation of Teachers for Multicultural Education." Supplements to the main chapters are: "Main Characteristics of the Selected Alternative Cultures" (Erich Mistrik; Roman Jazudek); "External Influences and a Character of Culture" (Erich Mistrik); and "International Teacher Education in Oulu as an Attempt to Educate Interculturally Competent Teachers" (Rauni Rasanen). Contains 311 references. (BT)
