EUROCLIO presents a new publication: Teaching 1815 – Rethinking Waterloo from multiple perspectives

Posted in International Training - Teaching 1815|Waterloo 200 International Training

Cover Teaching 1815 English

2015 marks the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo, a milestone in Europe’s 19th-century history, a defining moment in European history which marked the end of the Revolutionary and then Napoleonic wars (1792-1815), and drew the curtains over the first phase of the revolutionary years.

In the framework of the many commemorations that are taking place, EUROCLIO made a publication that gives an idea of the complexity of the event ‘Waterloo’, the multiple angles it can be approached from, and the intellectual richness it can provide students with. It aims to encourage history educators to address the topic of the Battle of Waterloo and the Napoleonic Wars with their classrooms in a transnational and innovative spirit.

Posted in Reflecting Remembrance - International Training ‘Internment without Trial’

Optimized-IMG 1072The final seminar of the Multi-Faceted Memory Project took place in Tallinn, Estonia between 21-24 May with 48 participants all around from Europe and beyond. Thanks to the Multi-faceted Memory Team members, the participants gained a thorough understanding of teaching and processing Europe’s totalitarian past by testing the learning materials developed during the project. Workshop presenters and their topics were the following: Daniel Gaede - Perpetrators or victims?; Denis Detling - What we want to preserve? - Remebrance and memorials in official narative on an example of Buchenwald Memorial; Hanna Toikkanen - How is history being used in public commemoration?; Magdalena Kruk-Kuchcinska - Wartime and responsibility ; Mare Oja, Meelis Maripuu - Gulag; Nataliya Markus - Childhood that was surrounded by the camp.

What I find special about EUROCLIO is that it is aimed particularly at the practitioners, that is the history teachers, and I highly admire EUROCLIO’s ability to bridge the theory/practice divide.
