Sypnowich, Christine – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
Cultural heritage, manifest in public monuments, plays an important role in education, providing tangible artefacts that chart the history of a society, its achievements, tragedies and horrors, contributing to human understanding and well-being. The educational impact is lifelong--everyone from schoolchildren to senior citizens visit and take in…

Merry, Michael S.; Schinkel, Anders – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
There are many things that can be done to educate young people about historical monuments in schools. At the same time, however, we argue that there is little warrant for optimism concerning the educational potential of classroom instruction given the institutional constraints under which school teachers must labour. For these reasons, we think it…

Enslin, Penny – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The Black Lives Matter campaign has forced a reassessment of monuments that commemorate historical figures in public spaces. One of these, a statue of General Lord Roberts, stands in Glasgow, once the Second City of the Empire. A critical reading of this monument as a memorial text in a landscape of power contrasts the intended heroic depiction of…

Walker, Juan Manuel – Journal of International Social Studies, 2021
As a social sciences methods professor, I face a growing concern over preparing Teacher Candidates (TC) for an ever-divided political system. The purpose of this study was to create and use primary source reading techniques regarding modern controversial issues. As educators, it is clear that the divide from political allegiance is hard to…

Barczak, Timothy J.; Thompson, Winston C. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
This article provides a definition of monuments and describes their potential for removalist and preservationist controversy. The authors focus on the example of Confederate monuments in the United States as, on the basis of racist impacts, these monuments are candidates for widespread removal. The authors review influential existing philosophical…

Price-Dennis, Detra; Mapes, Noelle – Reading Teacher, 2021
In this article, we offer insights into the literacy practices that supported students' inquiry and critical media making about the role of monuments in our society.

Baron, Christine – Social Education, 2020
When the author tells people that her research focuses on how people teach and learn with historic places, the first response is usually "Oh, I love field trips." This sensibility, that field trips are required to teach about a place, is the single greatest barrier to understanding what can be learned from Place. Every Place is an…

Bailey, Lucy E.; Kingston, Amanda M. – Journal of Peace Education, 2020
In this essay, we explore an embodied walking engagement with the grounds of the Oklahoma City bombing memorial site that commemorates a bombing that killed 168 people in 1995. We consider our engagement as an existential pilgrimage with implications for peace education curriculum and pedagogy. Returning with intention again and again to a place…

Adams, Lis – Journal of Museum Education, 2020
Bridging the gap between an author's works based on real life and historical accuracy can be a challenge for literary sites that symbolize both fiction and reality. Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House, the home of the Alcott family and the place in which she wrote her most famous novel, "Little Women," also served as the setting for the…

Kelly, Frances – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2021
Universities exert effort and expense in designing buildings to fit the current ontology and meet the perceived needs of society. This is not new -- historically, entire campuses were designed to manifest pedagogical and social ideals, like the "academical village" (Coulson, Roberts and Taylor, 2015) of Thomas Jefferson's imagination.…

Designing public space can take an interdisciplinary approach to urban space design by highlighting the relationship between urban design research and practice. This research attempts to educate students as 'researcher-designers' by applying practical techniques such as Place-check and Gehl's public life-tool in a review of how public space design…

Rauch, Noah – Journal of Museum Education, 2018
The 9/11 Memorial Museum's docent program offers visitors artifact-based entry-points into a difficult, emotional history. The program's launch raised a host of questions, many centered on how to balance and convey strongly held, often traumatic, and sometimes conflicting experiences with a newly constructed institutional narrative. This article…

Davis, Robert A. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
In pursuit of an alternative perspective on the so-called 'statues controversy', this essay brings recent interpretations of the enduring 'power', 'gaze' and 'magic' of statues into alignment with critical histories of iconoclasm, sacred and secular, and New Materialist accounts of our multiple entanglements with the object histories of inherited…
