The danger of a single story

By Dennis Fraters

In December, I was the fourth time in Morocco. For the first time to work in an intercultural exchange project. The other three times I was just traveling, of course to enjoy the fabulous food and the good weather, but also to understand the Moroccan culture. As a child, there were 8 kids with a Moroccan background in my class and they came every year back from holidays with a lot of stories about Morocco. And also in the last 10 years, the Dutch media wrote a lot about the Dutch inhabitants with a Moroccan background and their ´Moroccan culture´. I was very curious and motivated to understand this country and his population. During these travels, I spoke with a lot of people. I spoke with colleagues and old-participants of our projects, but also with taxi drivers, random people in the train, in restaurants and tea houses. With people in small villages in the Atlas mountain and with people in bigger cities like Casablanca, Rabat and Tanger.

Mirjana Kirchmaier wrote in cooperation with Schoolclash her bachelor thesis for the study Cultural Work at the University for applied sciences Potsdam about the theoretical and methodological approaches to discuss intercultural taboos, stereotypes and prejudices in the intercultural learning. These issues are showing up in intercultural organisations, like Schoolclash, but also in schools, youth clubs etc. This thesis gives an overview about different theories and methods and will be useful for teachers, youth leaders and intercultural workers.
