EuroClio is pleased to announce our upcoming webinar series Fake or Real, starting 10 November. The thematic focus on ‘fake news’ and propaganda is part of our collaboration with the House of European History, whose exhibition Fake For Real: A history of forgery and falsification runs until January 2022.

The webinar series will feature a keynote lecture along with workshops and interactive sessions focusing on how to help students deconstruct (historical) examples of propaganda, spot manipulation and develop a resilience towards them. As part of the webinar series, you will also discover the educational programme of the House of European History, including ready-to-use exercises to teach media literacy.

Our webinar series is free of charge and we extend a sincere thanks to our individual members for their financial support in developing this webinar series. Join us too with four easy online clicks and a yearly fee of €20.

Contested Histories Onsite: Bronze Soldier of Tallinn

We are delighted to invite you to travel (virtually) to the Bronze Soldier of Tallinn. First unveiled by the Soviets in 1947 in celebration of the Red Army reaching Nazi-occupied Estonia, it remained one of the longest surviving Soviet monuments in the country. To unpack this site, Karsten Brüggemann (Tallinn University), will give a lecture on the historical background of the so-called ‘Bronze Nights’ and the memory conflict that surrounded the monument from its establishment up until its relocation from Tallinn's historical centre in 2007. Following this lecture Mare Oja (EuroClio Ambassador and lecturer at Tallinn University) and Linda Kaljundi (Estonian Academy of Arts) will offer an interactive workshop focusing on the different perspectives on the Bronze Soldier, and how we can deal with such contested memory sites in history teaching.

Do you have a teaching practice to share related to global dimensions of national history and postcolonial history? Perhaps one that illustrates global perspectives with the history of your own country, region or nation as a starting point? We look for practices that are low-cost and easy to replicate as part of the project Critical History. The aim is to inspire colleagues to include such global dimensions in their own history teaching. 

Any ideas? Please contact Birgit Göbel (secretariat@euroclio.eu) with a short description and we will set up an interview!
