History Education In A Changing World: The Past As A Tool For The Future


History Education is political education, central to the development of children’s sense of identity, consciousness and citizenship. The HEIRNET 2016’s conference theme, The Past As A Tool For A Better Future, explores History Education as an antidote to xenophobia while teaching identity narratives. Countries and sectarian communities use these frequently competing nationalistic master and minor narratives to promote, sustain and support close-minded values, beliefs and policies that often lead to conflict, terrorism and war. As an antidote to xenophobia, the HEIRNET 2016 conference will examine History Education’s research based values, beliefs, policies, curricula and pedagogy/didactics that reflect the open-minded skills, processes, procedures and disciplinary concepts [second order] of history as a disputatious, debated and contested enquiry rooted in primary and secondary sources. The conference also covers a comprehensive range of other History Education themes and topics, see Abstracts Submissions section’s Themes & Topics.
