Podcast review: A History of the World in 100 Objects by Neil MacGregor

What am I suggesting you listen to? This History of the World in 100 objects starts with the first recorded humans and ranges across time and around the world ending in 2010, the year when the series of 15-minute programmes first aired on BBC Radio 4 over the course of 20 weeks. This is ‘a’ history (of course not ‘the’) history of humanity. A different object from the vast collection of the British Museum is at the centre of each 15 minute programme. With an object in mind, the then director of the British Museum, Neil MacGregor, sets the object in its context. He is a man with a gift for bringing the past to life, highly intelligent, with the…

The Inter-Allied Women’s Conference as a response to Paris Peace Conference

On 1 February 1919 a group of French women suffragists met with Wilson at his residence in Paris to request that women delegates participate in the Peace Conference. Wilson replied that women’s labour issues could be part of the conference agenda but women’s civil and political rights were domestic issues. The French Union for Women’s Suffrage now invited colleagues from other countries to join them in Paris to hold a parallel conference, The Inter-Allied Women’s Conference, starting 10 February 1919. Delegates attended from Armenia, Belgium, Britain, France, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Romania, South Africa and the United States. On 11 February an international delegation from the Women’s Conference met with Woodrow Wilson and received the same response as the French…

Call for Papers for National History Educational Conference is the global and the local – glocal history

The theme for the XIV National History Educational Conference is the global and the local – glocal history. Whether to prioritize and foreground local, national and/or global perspectives in history education has for a long time been a discussion in history educational research. Global goals, such as the United Nations Human Rights Charter, includes ideals about understanding across and beyond cultural and geographical borders. Combining these perspectives is a challenging task for history education. It raises questions about students’ possibilities and limitations in regards to understanding what is close and what is far away. Thus, key issues for the conference will be in what ways local, national and global history may support or complicate history teaching? Other topics of interest are: How can ‘World…

The Graz Conference 2020

Registration for the GRAZ conference of 2020 is now open! The Graz Conference 2020 brings together eminent scholars from around the world to discuss core concepts in history didactics such as ‘historical consciousness’, ‘historical thinking’ and ‘historical culture’ (including public history and memory culture) in a comparative approach. The core concepts have been the subject of various approaches and definitions in the national and regional networks and schools of history didactics and historical education.

The Graz Conference 2020 aims to make essential steps forward in this direction by putting more emphasis on the intercultural, transnational…
