Development on Cold War Historiana Module Continues in the Hague

As part of the continuing development of a module about the Cold War on Historiana, Andrea Scionti and Bob Stradling of the Historical Content team paid a visit to the EuroClio Secretariat in the Hague on the 20th of September. The module aims to provide history educators with easily-accessible and reusable content relating to the Cold War through a detailed, source-based exploration of various themes.

The meeting - following their last visit in June - was the first with a new batch of Trainees at EuroClio, who will be working on the existing source collections “1968” - reflecting a pivotal year in world history - and “Living with the Bomb” - which explores the realities of everyday life during the Cold War. They will also be contributing to the development of two new collections: "the Korean War" - which will showcase the conflict from various different perspectives - and "the World on the Brink of Destruction" - which will look at how the world experienced the threat of nuclear annihilation at the height of the Cold War.

While in the Hague, the team - along with Web Developer Nique Sanders - also discussed practical elements of the development of Historiana, aiming to further enhance the accessibility of the site.
