This book is based on a conference held at the University of Cologne in 2018 titled—as is this volume—“Inclusion, Education, and Translanguaging: How to Promote Social Justice in (Teacher) Education?”. The initial idea for this conference came about when we visited Ofelia García in New York in the fall of 2017 and were able to observe and experience translanguaging live—in a mathematics lesson at a bilingual primary school in Queens—during a research visit. This was a special event for us because we had by then been dealing with the concept for years and were constantly confronted with the standard question of how translanguaging can be put into practice in the context of teacher education, congresses and conferences.
