Teaching sensitive history in divided societies
About the competition
The idea behind the Historiana competition is to encourage educators to find practical ways to overcome a common challenge for history, heritage and citizenship educators. Each edition will focus on a different challenge, usually linked to the theme of an international training. The Jury will write a report with the main lessons learned from the analysis of all submissions as a contribution to the advancement of history, heritage and citizenship education as important subjects. The challenge for the 1st edition is to create learning activities that help to address stereotypes by teaching sensitive history in divided societies. This is a key challenge to educators across the world, and very relevant for the theme and programme of EUROCLIO’s Annual conference in Belfast in 2016. The hope is that many colleagues from Europe and beyond will share their practices in teaching this theme by taking part in the competition.
The winner of the competition will be invited to give a workshop at the EUROCLIO conference on “Reimagining Remembrance & Dealing with the Legacy of a Violent Past” in Belfast on 19-24 March 2016. The costs for travel and stay will be fully covered by EUROCLIO. In addition the winning learning activity will feature on Historiana and be tagged “Winner Historiana Competition”.1 More information on the theme and the programme of the conference in Belfast can be found at http://www.euroclio.eu/new/index.php/work/international-training/1357- 2016-belfast-northern-ireland
Who can submit?
All history, heritage and citizenship educators, teacher trainers and trainee teachers can submit a contribution.
EUROCLIO (European Association of History Educators) is delighted to announce the official Call for Participation for the 23rd EUROCLIO Annual Conference Professional Development and Training Course on ‘Remembering the Difficult Past through History and Heritage Education’ in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The conference will run from the 19th until 25th March 2016.
Educators from all over the world are invited to apply to participate in one of the most significant history education conferences in Europe.
2016 marks the centenary of two important events in History, namely the Easter Rising and the Battle of the Somme. Both events have come to be seen as key moments in the history of both sides of a divided city. How these issues, amongst others, are taught can provide a number of obstacles for teachers to overcome.
How can we teach controversial history in a responsible manner?
The conference aims to explore this question through an active programme which will engage the participant in workshops, dialogue tables, open spaces, on-site study visits, public debate and reflective and interactive panels. The core group of teachers and heritage educators will be involved in activities that will empower them to engage their students and other target groups in critical debate from multiple perspectives.
Thank you for your interest, please feel free to pass this message on to any contacts you feel may be interested in participating in this event.

for an academic conference on
3-5 June 2015, Skopje
Modern and contemporary history provide us with numerous case studies focusing on the multi-layered relationship between the Albanian- and Slavic-speaking (and other) communities in the Balkans. Whether through hardship and conflict, or coexistence and cooperation, various groups from this part of the Balkans have been engaging in and shaping a thoroughly intertwined regional life throughout history. The aim of this conference is to provide a forum for academic discussion on the complex trans-cultural history of the region and on the role of history education in the formation of mutual perceptions and relationships. The conference seeks to understand not only the past, but also the socio-political contexts which bring their influence to bear on the writing of historiography and history textbooks.
Most of the topics we will discuss at the conference will touch upon modern and contemporary history, but we do encourage an interdisciplinary approach and therefore welcome the participation of colleagues from different fields in the humanities and social sciences. Trans-cultural and cross-border approaches are equally encouraged. Participants may wish to focus on some of the following topics/sessions:
1. Historiography: regional perspectives on cultural and socio-political history
2. Historiography and history education: assessment of their relationship
3. History education: textbooks and society
4. Otherness: images of neighbours
5. Cross-cultural patterns: shared traditions and experiences
How to apply
Applicants should submit an abstract (around 500 words) of their paper and a short CV in English.
Participants: 20-25 scholars from history and related fields
Date and venue: 3-5 June 2015, Skopje
Costs: The organiser will provide board and accommodation, and will reimburse participants’ travel expenses.
Presentation time: 15-20 min.
Application deadline: 1 December 2014
Organiser responds: January 2015
Convenors: Eckhardt Fuchs (Georg Eckert Institute, Braunschweig), Darko Stojanov (Institute for National History), Besnik Emini (Institute for Spiritual and Cultural Heritage of the Albanians)
