25th EUROCLIO Annual Conference and Professional Training and Development Course: Mediterranean Dialogues

April 21, 2018 - April 26, 2018

Mediterranean Dialogues: Teaching History beyond our Horizons

EnglishFrançais
The Mediterranean Sea has often been depicted as the cradle of world civilisations. The sea is known in English and the Romance languages as the sea “between the lands”, but historically the Mediterranean Sea has gone by many names. The Romans have called it Mare Nostrum (Our Sea); in Arabic and Turkish the sea is often referred to as the White Sea (al-Bahr al-Abyad and Akdeniz, respectively); in Hebrew, it is called Yam Gadol (Great Sea), and in German Mittelmeer (Middle Sea).

Since Antiquity, the Mediterranean Basin has been the centre for the three monotheisms, flourishing civilisations, migrations, the development of cultural, scientific and economic exchanges, but also for the intersections of wars. Today, unfortunately, the Mediterranean Basin is the theatre of a humanitarian crisis that has challenged the collective leadership around the sea.

To understand the current challenges around the Mediterranean, history, heritage, and citizenship education has a key role to play. That is precisely the reason why EUROCLIO and APHG have decided to choose “Mediterranean Dialogues: Teaching History beyond our Horizons” as the theme for its 25th Annual Conference. Questions addressed are:

  • How can we make current challenges understandable through the Mediterranean Region’s history?
  • How can we work towards truly meaningful Mediterranean dialogues?
  • Can history education allow us to look beyond our European horizons?
  • And, how can we teach history by looking beyond our horizons?
La Méditerranée a souvent été décrite comme le berceau des civilisations. En anglais et dans les langues romanes, c’est la mer "entre les terres". En réalité historiquement, la Méditerranée a connu plusieurs noms. Les Romains l'ont appelée Mare Nostrum (Our Sea). En arabe et en turc, la mer est souvent appelée la mer blanche (al-Bahr al-Abyad et Akdeniz, respectivement); En hébreu, on l'appelle Yam Gadol (Grande mer), et Mittelmeer allemand (Middle Sea).

Depuis l'Antiquité, le bassin méditerranéen a été le centre des trois religions monothéistes, de civilisations florissantes, de migrations, du développement des échanges culturels, scientifiques et économiques, mais il a été aussi au coeur des guerres. Aujourd’hui, il est malheureusement, le théâtre d'une crise humanitaire qui met au défi le leadership collectif autour de la mer.

L'histoire, le patrimoine et l'éducation à la citoyenneté ont un rôle décisif à jouer dans la compréhension des défis actuels autour de la Méditerranée. C'est précisément la raison pour laquelle EUROCLIO et APHG ont décidé de choisir "Dialogues Méditerranéens: Enseigner l'Histoire au-delà de nos Horizons" comme thème de ce 25e Congrès annuel. Les questions abordées sont les suivantes:

  • Comment rendre les défis actuels compréhensibles à travers l'histoire de la région méditerranéenne?
  • Comment pouvons-nous travailler vers des dialogues méditerranéens vraiment significatifs?
  • L'éducation à l'histoire peut-elle nous permettre de regarder au-delà de nos horizons européens?
  • Et comment pouvons-nous enseigner l'histoire en regardant au-delà de nos horizons?
