Community Education and Multicultural Education in Danish ECECs

Research output: Contribution to conference without a publisher/journalPaperResearchpeer-review


The paper draws on empirical findings from a Critical Pedagogical (Prins 2019) and Critical-Utopian Action Research (Thingstrup 2018; Nielsen & Nielsen 2005) project, where pedagogues and community actors explored children’s everyday lives in the local community, and where they aimed to transform these perspectives into pedagogy (see Thingstrup, Prins & Smidt in prep). The paper discusses what roles ECEC plays in reproducing or transforming equality and equity, and what hopes and potentials multicultural and community-oriented approaches contain to the development of more just and diverse pedagogical practices and knowledge forms.
