The Miseducation of Multiculturalism

8th Annual Symposium
November 9-11, 2011

ES_RWMS_Web1 2011 Symposium Overview

What is multiculturalism? What is the place of this idea in US education? And what did German Chancellor Angela Merkel mean when she said that multiculturalism is dead? 

The symposium considered such questions in a three-day series of panel discussions and lectures. Together we explored the meanings of multiculturalism in the US and abroad, looking closely at the controversies and complexities surrounding this word, as well as the policies that have emerged to promote and support the idea. 

Student Co-Chairs: Temesghen Habte ’12, Julie Peterson ’12,  and Madelyn Troiano ’12
