Can Big Bird Fight Terrorism?

Children's Television and Globalized Multicultural Education

Naomi A. Moland

  • Examines multicultural education in a non-Western context
  • Discusses an understudied, but hugely influential, non-formal education tool: children's television
  • Explores the conundrums that emerge when the ideals of multiculturalism and peaceful coexistence enter the real world, with its challenging sociopolitical and cultural tensions
  • Critically examines how well-intentioned soft power efforts, designed to build peace and spread American goodwill, play out in different contexts
