From "The Other" to Another

Too often, individuals or groups are labelled as the Other. The other is someone outside the group, they are considered diffferent; they are not wanted; they are labelled and stereotyped.  They do not belong.   The effect of this label can be disastrous for the individual or group as it may lead to ridicule, ostracism (exclusion), or in its most radical and virulent form, genocide.  The purpose of this year’s project will be to explore the meaning of "The Other” and how to combat it.  A second purpose of the project will be to enhance students’ ability to view themselves as global citizens, as we will be partnering on this project with students from two other countries, namely Poland and Lithuania.
