Book launch with Dr Sadia Habib and Dr Julia Hope


You are invited to join us for the launch of our new books: “Learning and Teaching British Values” by Dr Sadia Habib and “Children’s Literature about Refugees” by Dr Julia Hope.

Two Goldsmiths alumni are holding a joint book launch:

“Learning and Teaching British Values: Policies and Perspectives on British Identities” by Sadia Habib

This book engages with important debates about multicultural British identities at a time when schools are expected to promote Fundamental British Values. It provides valuable insight into the need to investigate fluid and evolving identities in the classroom. What are the implications of Britishness exploration on young people’s relationships with and within multicultural Britain? What are the complexities of teaching and learning Britishness?

“Children’s Literature about Refugees: A catalyst in the classroom” by Julia Hope

In this book, Julia Hope explores ways of engaging in class with children’s books about refugees. Using Beverley Naidoo’s novel ‘The Other Side of Truth’ along with a book aimed at younger children – Mary Hoffman’s ‘The Colour of Home’ – Hope offers concrete case studies on how children’s literature about refugees can be used productively in the classroom.
