The 27th EuroClio Annual Conference on “Controversy and Disagreement in the Classroom” will take place in Belgrade, Serbia, from 31 March - 4 April 2020. Join us for five days of training workshops, keynotes, and active learning sessions - and some fun, too!

As part of the programme, participants will also have the opportunity to share their experiences of dealing with controversial history in their day-to-day work, providing a platform for peer-to-peer learning and networking.

Registration to the Conference will end 1 February, with only a limited number of seats available until 15 February on a first come first serve basis. Registrations for selected days only are possible and we encourage you to check the latest programme on our webpages.

Opportunities

Do you teach in a diverse classroom? Are you looking for new ways to keep all of your students engaged in the topic, and to promote their understanding of the subject? If so, we invite you to join our upcoming webinar on Inclusive Education!

The webinar will introduce participants to the core concepts of quality history and citizenship education, along with the the seven barriers to it that have been identified in EuroClio's Strategies for Inclusion project. Participants will also have the possibility to try the Learning Activity on "Freedom of Speech - the Tinker Case", available on Historiana.eu, both during a plenary session and by making use of virtual breakout rooms. Finally, we will launch the EuroClio Resources Centre, focusing on the good practices in Inclusive Education collected by the Strategies for Inclusion Team. We look forward to seeing you online!

A new logo for EuroClio
 
As we begin work in a new decade, we are proud to present our new EuroClio logo. A new logo representative of our mission and values marks a key step in professionalising our communication efforts and raising the visibility of EuroClio’s work.
 
The new logo is the result of a process which invited the contribution of our extended community. We therefore direct a big and timely thanks to everyone who sent us ideas, or contributed to the ‘word cloud’ of what truly represents us as an Association! Read more about our new logo here.
 
Our latest blogs & reviews
 

Akala is a well-known figure in the UK, as a rapper, social entrepreneur and public speaker. An outspoken critic on the growing inequalities in the UK, 'Natives' tackles the oppressive features of class and race.

This past November, the Association pour le Patrimoine Industriel (API), an ecomusée in Geneva in charge of industrial heritage conservation, seized the opportunity to link their exhibit on linotype and printing machine systems with press censorship.
