Teaching History in a Postwar Social Context--The Case of the Croatian Danube Region
Baranovic, Branislava; Jokic, Boris; Doolan, Karin
Intercultural Education, v18 n5 p455-471 Dec 2007
This paper discusses the results of empirical research examining history teachers' opinions on teaching recent history, and on the revocation of a moratorium on teaching former Yugoslavia's recent history in Serbian minority schools in the Croatian Danube region. The research was conducted in 2003, involving a sample of 29 primary and secondary history teachers in both the majority and minority programmes in the two counties affected by the moratorium. The post-war divide is evident from the differences in teachers' opinions regarding the moratorium's revocation and the presentation of minority history in history teaching. On a general level however, when the history of the Croats and Serbs was not discussed, most of the teachers advocated a liberal concept of history teaching. (Contains 10 tables and 8 notes.)
