Webinar on Football Life Stories


Friday 11 June marks the start of the UEFA European Football Championship. Join us online just before kick-off for the last of our football-themed webinar series! 

In this online session, EuroClio Ambassador and member of the Football Makes History team Chris Rowe will walk us through the process that led him to the development of 100+ Football Life Stories. These life biographies are not your usual hall of fame. While some football lives are heroic and have paved the way for inclusion, democracy and human rights, others have done just the opposite. A common feature of them all is that they tell a wider story that could feature as part of a history lesson, with accompanying "thinking points" added to each. Do you have an idea of your own for a life story related to football  - or indeed other sports, literature, music or popular culture? Join us 11 June at 17:00 CEST and share your story!

In addition to the many lesson plans and football life stories, our football team has also been busy writing up a set of policy recommendations aimed at ministries of education and sports - as well as the footballing world. These policy recommendations are now online in the form of a manifesto. Do you share our conviction that the diversity of football and football history can help address issues of social exclusion and discrimination? Then support us in giving football history and football heritage the attention it deserves!

Opportunities

Our Contested Histories Onsite team is pleased to announce a lecture on and virtual tour of the Warsaw Uprising Museum in Poland. The event will be held online on 1 July at 16:00 CEST. 

The museum is known for its narration of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising and its role in deepening the understanding of the violent context of the Second World War’s Eastern Front. The lecture will be given by Dr Maria Kobielska, a scholar on contemporary Polish memory culture. The lecture will detail the origins and agenda of the museum, as well as criticisms of the museum from a variety of perspectives in the 15 years since its opening. After the lecture Dr Marcin Napiórkowski will take us on an interactive virtual tour of the site. The tour will detail how the museum creates an immersive experience using the ‘time machine’ method and sensory stimulation before coming to the controversy and ethics surrounding the museum.   

With funding from the Europe4Citizens programme, Contested Histories Onsite is a project consisting of podcasts, lectures, online tours and debates on four controversial landmarks in the EU.
Sign up to the Virtual Tour 1 July

The final edition of our Historiana Webinar Series will look at the challenge of working with change and continuity in the classroom. Using the eLearning activity Precursors to the Reformation, several topics will be discussed: Why do students often find working with the concepts of change and continuity difficult? What strategies might help them? And, how do we translate these strategies to classroom activities? Join Gijs van Gaans and the Historiana team online 16 June 17:30 CEST.

Too often history classes only focus on the horrors of the Holocaust and of Nazi rule; there is, however, an increasingly growing literature that details the ways in which people resisted, helped one another, and successfully managed to survive.

White Privilege: The myth of a post-racial society by Kalwant Bhopal 

‘If we believe that education is a right and not a privilege then every individual, regardless of their race, gender or socio-economic background, has a right to a quality education’. 'White Privilege' explores how race operates as a form of disadvantage in modern-day society, where neo-liberal policymaking in its attempt to be inclusive, has portrayed an image of a post-racial society.
