Call for best practices: Global dimensions of national history and postcolonial history

EuroClio is looking for teaching practices centred around global perspectives of national history and postcolonial history. The practice collection is part of the project Critical History, led by the University of Tallinn in partnership with three other European universities.

Over  the last several years, we’ve been reminded--by journalists, scholars, thought leaders, and young people in our streets--that democracy in countries around the world, including the one from which I write, is fragile. So-called “consolidated” democracies have experienced democratic decline and countries once believed to be democratic are now considered examples…
