Connecting Europe Through History

Talking about Migration in Paris with History Teachers, Museum Educators and more!

On Wednesday 17 March 2010 83 people attended the seminar 'History of Migrations in France and Europe: which challenges for the classrooms?'  which EUROCLIO organised in Paris thanks to a successful and unique partnership with the Cité nationale de l'histoire de l'immigration (CNHI) where the event took place, the French Association of History and Geography Teachers (APHG) which is a member of EUROCLIO, and theNational Institute for Pedagogical Research (INRP). The audience, consisting mainly of French teachers, members of the educational staff, researchers, students and representatives of associations, showed a great interest in the European comparisons offered thanks to contributions from Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark and Germany (see programme). A diversity of studies on the way the history of migration is taught in Europe have been presented and discussed during the seminar, some analyzing the textbooks, some others the curricula, and in the case of France even the classroom practices. Case studies and pedagogical projects have also been introduced to the participants as sources of inspiration and a way to make them aware of the educational challenges which the history of migrations involves nowadays.
