2017 (English)In: International perspectives on teaching rival histories: Pedagogical responses to contested narratives and the history wars / [ed] Henrik Åstöm Elmersjö, Anna Clark & Monika Vinterek, London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, 207-228 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter, Nygren, Vinterek, Thorp, and Taylor show how a limited educational effort may support students’ historiographic gaze—the ability to identify, learn from, and critically reflect upon divergent perspectives and popularized representations of the past. This is a rare and constructive example of implementing multiperspectivity in secondary schools. Findings show how students’ understanding of divergent historical perspectives and critical attitudes toward popular historical writing can be affected by processing and problematizing historians’ conflicting perspectives on the causes of World War One. This exploratory study also highlights differences between Swedish and English students’ historical understanding and critical attitudes and raises questions about gender differences and how history in schools may support multiperspectivity among students, not least students with lower grades.
