EUROCLIO (European Association of History Educators) is delighted to announce the official Call for Workshops for the 23rd EUROCLIO Annual Conference.

Deadline for contributions is 15 December 2015.

Interested parties are encouraged to participate in the call and realise their own workshop project during one of the most significant conferences in the field of history, heritage and citizenship education across Europe.


The conference is welcoming workshop proposals covering the following thematic areas:

  • Concepts and methods of linking, defining and enhancing history and citizenship education;
  • Exchanging local and national experiences of dealing with the violent past across borders and continents;
  • Responsibility of history, heritage and citizenship educators toward remembrance practices (including memories and commemoration).
  • Remembering and learning about 1916 in a multi-perspective way, in the eye of World War One, as well as the Easter Rising, Battle of the Somme in the broader European and World-Historical context;
  • Similarities and differences in history education systems, policies and approaches, including dealing with a shared history of United Kingdom and Ireland;
  • Teaching history and citizenship in conflict or post-conflict societies;
  • Teaching history and citizenship in divided societies (e.g. separated curricula, lack of common educational resources, language-barriers)
  • Role of religion in teaching and understanding the history of conflict.


The conference aims to explore the question on “How can we teach controversial history in a responsible manner” through a highly (inter)active and engaging programme with workshops, dialogue tables, open spaces, on-site study visits, public debate and reflective and interactive panels. The conference will provide a platform of intercultural exchange in which the participants will actively learn, share best practices and network.

We hope that you will consider leading a workshop to spread your word and experience across Europe!
