Students in Social Science 1 visited the Mångkulturellt Centrum (MKC) in Fittja, Sweden to broaden their understanding of national identity.
As a module in their course, students have been studying:
Group’s and individual’s identity, relationships and social living conditions on the basis that people are grouped based on categories that create both community and alienation.
To explore and better understand this important discussion, students visited the “National Psychosis” exhibition at MKC. During this visit, students went on a tour of the exhibition, asked questions and explored on their own.
The exhibition is about Sweden’s different realities and the identity crisis in our country.
The exhibition addresses questions about: identity, democracy and every citizen’s role in the society. National Psychosis is made up of concrete facts, raises the different images of Sweden, our common cultural heritage and, even, the question: What does a Swede look like?
