“Learning Local Football Histories: A Tool for Social Inclusion?” Seminar in Rotterdam
October 21, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:30 pm
This Saturday – 21 October – EuroClio will host a seminar at Erasmus University Rotterdam as part of the ongoing project, “Football. A People’s History of Europe”, which takes the history of football as a lens through which to explore wider historical themes in an accessible manner. The seminar is part of the Football People action weeks, funded by the FARE Network and participants will have the opportunity to share experiences of using football to teach history and explore possibilities for closer cooperation building on existing initiatives.
The aim of the seminar is to present EuroClio’s common framework for creating educational resources that relate to local football history, as well as the existing practices which harness the unique potential of football history to reach out to young learners. It will feature a group of professionals from relevant fields, including history teachers, sports journalists, and football historians, thus creating a diverse and active network that can further develop the intermingling of local football history and history education beyond the event.
