Abstract [en]

Norlin and Lindmark focus on three contemporary debates on history in Sweden, which have proved the most intense and enduring in recent decades. The first controversy centred around disagreements and aims of popularising national history and the popular approach to history evinced by Lindqvist's publications. Questions surrounding the promotion of history as a core subject in the public school system foundered over the issue of content selection. The third controversy, which peaked in 2008, called into question the aims of the 'Living History Forum' in addressing the Holocaust. These debates on the mediation of history highlight the disagreements over the aims of popularising history, the complex relationship between scholarship and publication, and the fear of political and partisan involvement in the mediation of history.
