History Education and Migration

International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics

History Education and Migration

Über das Buch

The International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics (JHEC) is the official journal of the International Society for History Didactics. The journal is issued once a year and publishes peer reviewed papers in English. The abstracts are tri-lingual (English, French, German). The tradition of the journal goes back to the year 1980.

The leading topic of 2020 issue of JHEC is Migration in History Education. Despite the fact that migrations have been part of human experience all over the world from the most ancient until the most recent times, the way they are dealt with in history education is often less than satisfactory, both in terms of teaching (any) history to immigrant children and of presenting (to all the students) migrations from the past. The model of “sedentary society” seems to be universally promoted by school. Current political debates dominate over critical historical research in shaping teaching units and the old schemata are hard to eradicate.

The papers in the Forum section concentrate on the issues related to developments of contemporary history didactics and its impact on teachers’ practices in various social and national contexts of Africa, Europe and Australia.

The book review section is expanding.
