2013 (English)In: Cultural and Religious Diversity and Its Implications for History Education / [ed] Joanna Wojdon, Schwalbach: Wochenschau Verlag , 2013, 207-224 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
This article presents a study of how the concept of historical consciousness is defined, applied and justified in Swedish history didactical research. The study finds that there is a common ground for understanding what a historical consciousness is, but that the concept is applied in a variety of ways. It is suggested that this variation is one reason why the concept is generally believed to be difficult to define and apply, since the application of the concept influences how a historical consciousness is interpreted. It is also suggested that the concept could be rendered more versatile by further theoretical investigation into how the concept’s definition and applications are connected.
