EUROCLIO’s 2019 5th Regional Summer School: “Diversity and Violence”

August 22 - August 24

€495 – €550

Rethinking approaches in History Education

22 – 24 August 2019 – Osijek, Croatia

This year, the Summer School will take place in the beautiful setting of Osijek, Croatia, from 22 to 24 August 2019. The Croatian History Teachers Association (HUNP) and the Museum of Slavonia (Muzej Slavonije) are co-organising the Summer School.

The theme this year will be “Diversity and violence”. The setting of the summer school in Croatia offers a great opportunity to deal with this theme, as violence and diversity have shaped the countries’ history up until today. The Balkan region is famous for its multicultural composition, with substantial minorities in past and present. In this summer school we will explore the issues of minorities in history teaching, and aspects of separate schooling systems for different groups within society. This is connected to a focus on local history in history teaching, looking at both Croatian and international examples. At the same time, violent episodes in the past, including World War 2 and the 1990s war (Homeland war) have influenced how society deals with its diverse population and history.

Political elites often continue wars through collective memory. In this context, history and citizenship educators have the pivotal role of countering this tendency by promoting a critical look at national and world history, helping students analyse the causes and consequences of intolerance, and, ultimately, preventing history from repeating itself. To enable educators to fulfill this demanding role, it is necessary to rethink the approach to history education.

Programme

During the Summer School, multiple educational visits and workshops will aim to discuss how to rethink approaches in history education to start teaching about diversity and violence in an effective and sensitive way.

The programme will consist also of some specific themes:

  • Multiculturalism and Threats of War
  • Coexistence and Remembrance

During the three training days, participants will learn through workshops, on-site study visits, peer learning and debating. Participants will improve their knowledge of diversity and violence, and get acquainted with new educational contents, services, methods and, of course, educators from different countries.
