Transcript: Thesis Proposal Presentation Roia Dagher Representation of Diverse Cultures in Children’s Picture Books Local Library Intro Roia Dagher Chapter 1 Introduction & Rationale Chapter 1 Background In today's society, cultural diversity is seen as an important aspect of learning how to grow as a person with the knowledge and understanding of cultural differences. Public libraries serve an important role A library collection, which contains books of diverse characters and backgrounds, completely reaffirms young people's sense of identity and the importance of their tradition (Williams & Deyoe, 2014, pg. 98). In early childhood education, Children begin to develop a sense of what is being represented in the world Educators can bring value to children's literature Multicultural children's books can be used widely by teachers to help students develop diverse perspectives (Iwai, 2015, p.82). Problem Statement Multicultural literature, especially when combined with exploratory practices has been shown to increase cultural sensitivity and appreciation among young children (Howrey & Whelan-Kim, 2009, p.125). The types of children's picture books accessible to the community in the public library have an impact on children's recognition and awareness of diverse cultures. Specifically, the diverse cultures represented in the community can have an effect on the types of cultures portrayed in children's picture books in the local library. Purpose of the Study examine whether the various cultures represented in the community can affect the types of cultures represented in the children's picture books of the local library. Research Question How is cultural diversity represented in children's picture books at two local libraries? Rationale Over the past century there has been a dramatic increase in cultural diversity within communities in Ontario. It is important that those who influence the development and distribution of children's books have the expertise and cultural insight they need when dealing with texts. Themes in children's stories tend to be similar and provide a common ground that can serve as a basis for respectful and substantive discussion of differences (Howrey & Whelan-Kim, 2009, p.125). Chapter 2 Theoretical basis & Literature Review Chapter 2 Theoretical Basis Bronfenbrenner's ecological systems theory The ecological system model consists of five levels of the environment— the microsystem, the mesosystem, the exosystem, macrosystem and Chronosystem—with each level having a different effect on each individual's development (Bronfenbrenner, 1979). Ecological viewpoint is useful because it enables a simultaneous emphasis on the individual child's features, the vital home setting, and the pervasive cultural environment (Jordan, 2004, p. 196). Literature Review Key Themes Importance of Multicultural children’s literature Excellent platform for educators and children to focus on cultural issues (Howrey & Whelan-Kim, 2009, p.125) Educators Reflections on Multicultural Literature Teachers who want to connect with the concept of diversity will either review collections of children's books that can be found on the web or visit their local public library Literature Review Importance of Children Seeing Themselves in Books When children cannot identify with a book or see their lives celebrated through stories, it may have a negative impact on their self-image (Koss, 2015, p.32). Chapter 3 Methodology Approach Chapter 3 Research Design Qualitative study Content analysis, as a technique, provides new insights, increases the understanding of specific phenomena by a researcher, or informs practical actions (Krippendorff, 1980, p.21). Content analysis Research technique for constructing replicable and accurate inferences from texts (or other relevant subjects) to the context of their use (Krippendorff, 1980, p.21). Sampling Technique Homogeneous sampling "Certain sites or individuals are selected because they possess a similar trait or characteristic" (Mertler, 2019, p.168). Data Collection Selection of books Ten children's picture books from Hamilton public library Staff recommendation list Ten children's picture books from St. Catharine's public library Librarian used advanced search bar Data Analysis Coding Process Deductive Categories are predetermined Template Analysis Refers to a group of techniques which thematically organize textual data Scope and Limitations Scope The main focus of this study is to explore the representation of cultural diversity in children's picture books at two libraries in Southern Ontario.

Transcript: A positive government attitude towards immigration, with measures taken and reflected in policy-making that encourage acceptance of immigrants' values, results in a more accepting attitude towards immigrants among the population. BUT... Discovering whether different government policies on immigration lead to different social outcomes. Interesting for comparison purposes in their different attitudes towards immigrants: multiculturalism vs. integration. My methodology is comparing the way two member states' governments deal with changing patterns of immigration and assimilation, and subsequently inducting a framework from that analysis. How does this relate to Identity and Integration? Why Sweden, why the Netherlands? It is an issue that, by all accounts, has not being addressed adequately by EU member states' governments. "Kanadamodellen" - The Canada Model Research Question and Hypothesis Immigration in the Netherlands and Sweden How have the policy choices the Swedish and Dutch governments made historically affected the status of immigrants in the respective countries today? Has the multiculturalism model or the integrationalist model proven to be more successful? Its subtitle is, tellingly, “How immigration leads to work,” which explains the obsession with Canada: In Sweden, immigrants – the largest group of whom are refugees – are typically unemployed, marginalized and far poorer than the native-born population. Jan Rath: the waves of immigration in the Netherlands Gary Cretser: immigration patterns in Sweden. Goran Rosenberg: the evolution of Sweden's attitudes towards immigrants. William Rogers Brubaker: methodology and framework. Gary Freeman: defining the research field. Comparison of the Immigration Systems Immigration Patterns in the Netherlands (Provisional) Argument and Conclusion A large number of immigrants have come from nations that are not neighboring states. Sweden: Multiculturalism and a state-enforced ideology of helping out those in need based on moral compassionate reasons made immigration possible solely through aiding refugees. Relevant Literature Historically a country of immigration from other Scandinavian countries. Immigration for economic purposes tapered off in the mid-20th century. When economic migration was no longer a necessity for Sweden's economy, the Swedish political elite almost overnight redefined immigration into a moral duty... The political vision of the ideology of immigration was altered from total integration to multiculturalism. Immigration is an issue dealt with in some respect by most European nations, whether it results in overpopulation or a brain-drain. The Netherlands have also historical been a country of immigration. Up to the early 20th century. Immigrants from former colonial areas and from around the Mediterranean predominate. Widespread assumption that immigrants are to be defined primarily in ethnic and religious terms and that their behavior subsequently links back to these factors. There is an idea that the "problem" of immigration can only be resolved by diluting ethnic and religious differences: integration, and if need be, coercion. No recent history of a government skilled economic immigrant intake system *I draw this methodology from William Rogers Brubaker's "Immigration, Citizenship, and the Nation-State in France and Germany: A Comparative and Historical Analysis. Methodology Immigration Patterns in Sweden “We looked at Canada, and we saw that it worked – even though Canadians don’t always say this, from a Swedish perspective we felt that Canada is a model that should be followed,” said Martin Adahl, one of the book’s editors and a fellow with the Stockholm think tank FORES.
