Transcultural Pedagogies for Multilingual Classrooms

Responding to Changing Realities in Theory and Practice

«Linguistic and cultural diversity are a global reality. The editors and authors of this volume make an important and original contribution to share knowledge about ways to improve education in diversity contexts. The contributions cover a wide range of topics: from commitment to revitalising the languages of autochthonous minorities, preserving the languages of immigrants to the use of new media and artistic encounters as teaching tools.»

Ingrid Gogolin, University of Hamburg, Germany

This book explores the ways in which transcultural pedagogies can support learning and literacies in critical, creative and socially just ways, highlighting research initiatives from across the globe. Each chapter provides a different and innovative perspective with respect to reimagining language and literacy pedagogies in conjunction with students’ diverse literacies and resources. Presenting a collection of classroom and community-based research, the book addresses the intersections of plurilingualism, identity and transcultural awareness in various contexts, including schools, universities, as well as local and Indigenous communities. These settings have been deliberately chosen to profile the range of research in the field, showcasing transcultural, plurilingual, translanguaging and community-engaged pedagogies, among others.

Ingrid Gogolin, University of Hamburg, Germany

«If you are a teacher or a teacher educator looking for cutting edge research on transformative, culturally sustaining and decolonising pedagogies, this book is for you. Through fascinating examples of the transformative – and transgressive – power of transcultural and translingual pedagogies in a wide variety of contexts, the authors demonstrate the potential offered by linguistic and cultural diversity to foster transcultural awareness and competence, destabilize linguistic privilege and rethink classroom practice and teacher education in transcultural times.»

Christine Hélot, University of Strasbourg, France

«This inspirational volume documents how educators in diverse contexts around the world have orchestrated interactional spaces in their classrooms that enable minoritized students to mobilize their intellectual, linguistic, and cultural strengths to create knowledge, literature, and art. In chapter after chapter, we see students engaged in the collaborative generation of power and agency – empowerment pedagogy in action.»

Jim Cummins, University of Toronto, Canada
