The aim of the course is to offer a theoretical introduction on the discussions on multiculturalism through reading texts, watching films and videos, discussing art exhibitions and to try to translate these approaches to the analysis of how multiculturalism is practiced in various institutions in Finland. This means, apart from analyzing history, paradoxes, formation and language of multiculturalism, we will also visit institutions that are practicing multiculturalism. Thorough this theoretical and practical mapping of multicultural discourse in Finland we will try to offer multiple perspectives on this issue. One of the main concerns of the course will be how art and culture could be used in dealing with theory and practice of multiculturalism.
