This research unit is the focal point for research done at the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University whose aim is to explore the importance of ethnicity and diversity in various institutional and educational contexts.
The research comprises studies exploring the occurrence of social categories such as children, young people, pupils, parents, Danes, refugees, girls, immigrants, bilingualism and Muslims, as well as the diversity and differentiation which they represent. This includes studies of race, ethnicity, gender, age, class, religion, language, generations, sexuality, and how all these categories intra-act (inter-sectionality) – as well as studies of processes such as minorisation, racialisation, privileging and stigmatisation.
The unit bases its work on a range of different analytical, methodological and theoretical frameworks; but adopts (in general) an approach which is inclusive of the majority/processes of majorisation and critical of standardisation and normativities. We focus in particular on physical, discursive, affective, material, linguistic and relational practices among children and adults; on the regulative practices that certain forms of communities, teaching, management and organisation contain; and on the resources used by children and young people to navigate in relation to these practices.
The unit has two objectives: (1) To create a forum and space for reflection in which questions of ethnicity, diversity and education can be presented, analysed and discussed across an beyond the boundaries between different subject areas and different methodological approaches. (2) To establish a platform from which we can use our research to shed light on and challenge the themes and issues that are taken up politically and ethically, in the media, in educational contexts and in academic studies with regard to the education, behaviour, integration, radicalisation of minoritised, racialized and ethnised children and young people.
