EuroClio Director meets Europe Committee of the French Member Association

Jaco Stoop Association ,

On 30 January 2016, Jonathan Even Zohar was invited to join the meeting of the Europe Committee of APHG, the Association of History and Geography Teachers of France. This was an excellent opportunity to present in more detail the EuroClio approaches and methodologies. The Europe Committee brings together representatives from different regions of France and seeks to connect initiatives among history and geography educators of France. Following a presentation on the activities of EuroClio, a discussion was held about specific ideas for future cooperation, such as hosting the EuroClio Annual Conference in France. At the end, a short video-interview was held with Jonathan, in which questions were raised about the importance of teaching history in a transnational fashion, while developing the subject in more student-centred ways. This interview will be published on the French Association website soon.
