Community Cultural Wealth: Uyghurs, Social Networks, and Education
April 1, 2014
Uyghurs, one of China’s 56 officially recognized ethnic groups, are a linguistic minority within China who speak the Uyghur language, a Turkic language utilizing a modified Arabic script, and most are practicing Moslems. Dr. Clothey’s presentation will show ways in which Uyghurs draw from their own community resources to navigate within a Mandarin-dominant education and economic system, “capitalize” on their language and ethnicity, and also create systems within their own community to support others.
The discussion takes place on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at 12 p.m. in One Drexel Plaza (3001 Market Street), Room 004.
The event is part of the School of Education's Global Education Colloquium, which launched in November 2013. The monthly discussions feature an expert speaking on a globally-oriented topic that is the result of research spanning the full range of learning, teaching and training topics including international studies, higher education, peace education, social justice, inequality, politics of knowledge, policy, leadership and organizational change.
Registration is now open. You are invited to bring your lunch. Drinks and cookies will be served.
