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, 1-14 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Elmersjö, Clark, and Vinterek establish the framework of the book in this introductory chapter. They introduce the different approaches to teaching history introduced by Peter Seixas in 2000: the best story approach enhancing collective memory, the disciplinary approach, and the postmodern approach. By linking these approaches to different genre positions taken by historians and described by Keith Jenkins and Alun Munslow (the reconstructionist, constructionist, and deconstructionist positions), Elmersjö, Clark, and Vinterek frame the book’s general theme of teaching rival histories in an epistemological question regarding what history is and what it can be.
