Teaching History in the Twenty-First Century with Dr Ulinka Rublack, Sir John Elliott, Prof Christopher Clark, Prof Maxine Berg and Prof Michael Bentley.
Panel Discussion Tuesday, 29 January 2013, Venue: The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH
During the twentieth century, traditional concepts of objectivity and narratives of Western exceptionalism have been forcefully challenged. Does that mean that our relationship with the past and the content and purpose of history are now less self-evident than before? Which historical problems appear most urgent for contemporary societies to explore critically? What and how do historians in an age intensely aware of global interconnections teach in universities, and do their interests productively inform school curricula? Following a year of intense debate on history teaching in schools, the panel will discuss the controversies over current visions of the discipline.
