Social Justice and Early Childhood Education
This course will challenge participants’ constructions of identity, difference, diversity, and social inequalities in relation to local and global experiences. Participants will critically engage with a range of theoretical approaches through a social justice lens, with a focus on poverty as it impacts upon children, families and community. Furthermore, the course will address recent theoretical developments in social constructions of race, gender, disability, and sexuality. Participants will apply theoretical knowledge to investigate, analyse and synthesise social justice issues in their chosen disciplines of early childhood education, family or community development studies. This will result in a complex body of knowledge that re-examines participants’ philosophies and articulates socially transformative practices for children, their families and communities.
