Research Seminar: Dr Hugo Lázaro Ruiz
From Robbie Court
About this event
Following a systematic, proactive and descriptive analysis model as proposed by Ezeiza (2009), this study examines the representation of homoparental families in 35 Spanish as a Foreign Language textbooks for beginners. Results showed a lack of representation of homoparental families in comparison with normative family models. It is crucial to pursue an inclusive and equitable quality education in order to avoid unwelcome learning environments for LGBTQ+ students. Our society is diverse and this must be reflected in teaching and learning materials.
