The past in peril: Greek history textbook controversy and the Macedonian crisis
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies. (History and Education)
2011 (English)In: Education Inquiry, ISSN 2000-4508, E-ISSN 2000-4508, Vol. 2, no 1, 93-107 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The conflict between Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia over the name and the historical heritage of Macedonia, which in the early 1990s erupted in a diplomatic and political crisis, can in part be analysed as a "history war". In this article, the Macedonian conflict's roots in and impact on debates concerning the contents of history education in Greece, at the time of the crisis, are examined, along with the conditions which gave rise to revision. Using samples from Greek press and educational journals, professional and identity political interests are analysed as boundary-work, brought about by the need for various advocates of "national values" in history education to demarcate themselves from extreme nationalism, in the name of science and patriotic duty.
