Heterogeneity of Societies

The subject area “Heterogeneity of Societies” contains textbook extracts focusing on the societal status quo, which is often characterised by diversity in both past and present-day societies. The term “diversity” can be applied to a variety of different categories. An example is the phenomenon of migration. It can, on the one hand, be part of the national identity of a country or, on the other hand, be used as focal point to start debates about discrimination and dissociation.

Constructions of Space and Belonging

The subject area “Constructions of Space and Belonging” contains textbook extracts dealing with geographically or spatially-related internal and external labelling processes. Labels used include constructs such as Europe, the Arab world, the Orient, or the Global South, but also concepts such as identity or the nation state. National concepts and models of identification are often shaped by depictions of belonging or exclusion and are reflected in textbooks in a number of different ways. zzz
