New Podcast Episode!

'Past Times - Talking and Teaching History' is a monthly podcast series for and by history educators. The aim of the podcast is to discuss topics and ideas that are relevant for the teaching of history, to inspire each other and learn from some of the great minds that are part of our community. Launched in June, the first episode featured Prof. Sam Wineburg and a discussion on history and digital media literacy. 

In our latest episode we explore the role of textbooks in history education. Hosts Maayke de Vries and Katria Tomko are joined by EuroClio Board member Ann-Laure Liéval and Dr. Maren Tribukait from the Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research.
