NAREA: Loris Malaguzzi and the Schools of Reggio Emilia

April 22, 2017

Featuring co-editors of the publication
Loris Malaguzzi and the Schools of Reggio Emilia
Peter Moss, from the UK, and Marina Castagnetti, from Reggio Emilia, will inaugurate this new NAREA professional development series featuring wide-ranging and diverse voices from the global community and will serve to strengthen regional networks of early childhood educators and advocates throughout North America. The overall aim is to interrogate the “dominant discourses in early childhood,” increasingly viewed as becoming more narrow and prescriptive.
Meet The Speakers:
Peter Moss is emeritus professor of Early Childhood Provision at UCL Institute of Education, University College London and co-editor, along with Gunilla Dahlberg, of the “Contesting Early Childhood” book series. He has researched and written on many subjects including early childhood education and care; the relationship between employment, care and gender; and democracy in education.

Marina Castagnetti was a teacher at Diana school as well as at the Documentation and Educational Research Center of the Istituzione Scuole e Nidi d’Infanzia – Municipality of Reggio Emilia. Marina worked on several projects that are part of “The Hundred languages of Children” exhibition.

She was the co-author with Loris Malaguzzi and Vea Vecchi in the “Shoe and meter” and “A journey into the rights of children” projects and books of Diana School, edited by Reggio Children, Reggio Emilia. Recently, she co-edited Loris Malaguzzi and the Schools of Reggio Emilia.
