2017 (English)In: International Perspectives on Teaching Rival Histories: Pedagogical Responses to Contested Narratives and the History Wars / [ed] Henrik Åström Elmersjö, Anna Clark & Monika Vinterek, Palgrave Macmillan, 2017, 1, 17-39 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

In this chapter, Elmersjö explores the epistemological issues faced in the context of the Norden Associations’ attempts to reach agreement on historical narratives in relation to different genre positions of historical writing. The historians engaged in these attempts seem to have acknowledged the need for different narratives, with different protagonists and agents, as well as different interpretations of historical events in different national contexts. Instead of relating these insights to the epistemological issues they raise, however, a reconstructionist approach to historical truth and the embedded meaning of the past was never abandoned. Instead, an acknowledgement of the cultural reasons behind others’ divergent, and basically contingent, conceptualization of history was put forward, but without the recognition of the cultural contingency of history itself.
