On 23 November 2020 we held an online seminar to discuss around stereotypes.
The seminar started with a short and interactive lecture by Prof. Paolo Balboni, followed by the presentation of four different projects from the platform and ended with a final workshop.
During the workshop we divided the participants into six groups asking them to share their thoughts. The report of the working groups can be downloaded at this link.
On this site we will continue to collect practices until 31 December 2020.
If you want to share a project to be upload on the platform or suggest to someone else to do it, this is the application page: www.unlearningstereotype.org/submit-your-practice
For those who would like to go deeper into the subject, we share here a short selection of books and websites that we consider to be of reference. Of course, feel free to recommend others as well!
