The International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics (JHEC) is the official journal of the International Society for History Didactics. The journal is issued once a year and publishes peer reviewed papers in English. The abstracts are tri-lingual (English, French, German). The tradition of the journal goes back to the year 1980.
The 2021 issue of JHEC has two leading topics: History education 30 years after the Cold War and History education in Africa.
The post-Cold War section is formed by the articles referring to four European countries of the former Soviet bloc and a review of a book about a fifth one. The growing body of research on the process of decolonization and post-colonial education in Africa, but also on other issues related to studying and teaching about the past in that part of the world, is reflected in both the articles and book reviews, with contributions from African scholars. The topic of museums in history education, placed in the Varia section, is a recurring issue in didactical research but still worth re-visiting.

Theory of the History Classroom
This volume proposes a theory of history education in formal classroom settings. Specifically, it aims to outline how the particular setting of the classroom interacts with domain-specific processes of historical thinking. The theory rests on the notion that formal school education is a communicative and social system, while historical thinking occurs in the psychological system of a person’s historical consciousness. In the complex interaction of these systems, historical thinking, emotions, communication, media and language are of particular importance. Drawing upon educational theory as well as the theory of history, this theory of the history classroom provides a framework as well as a solid foundation for future empirical research, both for developing research questions as well as for interpreting findings.

CHANGE – Handbook for History Learning and Human Rights Education
For Educators in Formal, Non-Formal and Higher Education
What opportunities offer combinations of human rights education and history learning for the empowerment of learners and for further development of both educational approaches? And what would such a combination look like in educational practice?The handbook provides ideas and answers for educators in formal and non-formal education as well as in university level teacher training from theoretical and practice perspectives. The Change approach links exploring change connected to human rights in the past with contributing to change in the present. Welche Möglichkeiten eröffnet eine Verbindung von historischem Lernen und Menschenrechtsbildung sowohl für ein Empowerment der Lernenden als auch für die Weiterentwicklung beider Bildungsansätze? Und wie kann eine solche Verbindung in der Bildungspraxis aussehen?Das Handbuch bietet Bildungspraktiker_innen in der schulischen und außerschulischen Bildung sowie in der universitären Lehrer_innenausbildung Antworten und Anregungen aus theoretischer und praktischer Perspektive. Der entwickelte Change Ansatz ist dabei Klammer für die Auseinandersetzung mit menschenrechtsbezogenem Wandel in der Vergangenheit und dessen Förderung in der Gegenwart.

History Education and Migration
International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics
The International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics (JHEC) is the official journal of the International Society for History Didactics. The journal is issued once a year and publishes peer reviewed papers in English. The abstracts are tri-lingual (English, French, German). The tradition of the journal goes back to the year 1980. The leading topic of 2020 issue of JHEC is Migration in History Education. Despite the fact that migrations have been part of human experience all over the world from the most ancient until the most recent times, the way they are dealt with in history education is often less than satisfactory, both in terms of teaching (any) history to immigrant children and of presenting (to all the students) migrations from the past. The model of “sedentary society” seems to be universally promoted by school. Current political debates dominate over critical historical research in shaping teaching units and the old schemata are hard to eradicate. The papers in the Forum section concentrate on the issues related to developments of contemporary history didactics and its impact on teachers’ practices in various social and national contexts of Africa, Europe and Australia. The book review section is expanding.   ** Mit der Bestellung eines Titels zur Fortsetzung erhalten Sie diesen Titel sowie alle künftigen Titel der entsprechenden Reihe direkt nach Erscheinen zugesandt.Ein weiterer Vorteil: Sie sparen rund 20 Prozent gegenüber der Einzelbestellung.

Historical Thinking
International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics
Developing historical thinking is becoming an overarching goal of history education, at least on the declarative level. The concept is not new and has been developed for many years in various national and international contexts. However, its scope and contents, and especially the methods of transferring it onto everyday school practice still remain work in progress for they involve major re-structuring of traditional ways of teaching. In this case, modernizing history education is not about incorporating new technologies but rather about developing new approaches to any and all resources used in the classroom and issues discussed in the process of history education. Some of the papers in this issue of JHEC address the issues posed by the use of films, museums, writing, and the introduction of local and regional history in history education.Starting from this year, JHEC launches its new section devoted to book reviews. It discusses publications related to history didactics and all aspects of historical culture and history education in the past and present, published in the recent years in the English language. ** Mit der Bestellung eines Titels zur Fortsetzung erhalten Sie diesen Titel sowie alle künftigen Titel der entsprechenden Reihe direkt nach Erscheinen zugesandt.

History Didactics and Public History
International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics
Is history education part of public history? Can it profit from public history strategies of dealing with the public? How does it incorporate public history into the teaching-learning process? How does it deal with public history products, such as museum exhibitions, tours, history-related fiction and comic books, movies and games? Or maybe public history is a form of history didactics and can use its conceptual models in the process of developing its own? How are both related to academic history, to historical memory and culture and how do they influence them? These are just some questions addressed in the 2018 issue of JHEC "Public History and History Education". The Forum section provides snapshots on crucial topics of didactical research in selected countries: curricula, textbook production and contents, and school practice in the process of changes. The issue closes with the theoretical reflection by Wolfgang Hasberg on periodization in history and history education. ** Mit der Bestellung eines Titels zur Fortsetzung erhalten Sie diesen Titel sowie alle künftigen Titel der entsprechenden Reihe direkt nach Erscheinen zugesandt.

History Teacher Education Facing the Challenges of Professional Development in the 21st Century
International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics
The leading theme of this year’s issue of the International Journal of Research in History Didactics, History Education and History Culture (JHEC) is history teacher education in the changing world. The picture of initial teacher training in the world is heterogeneous, the existing situation is seldom regarded as satisfactory and, thus, changes are introduced almost instantly. The articles either present existing models of history teachers’ education or focus on its possible evolution on the basis of empirical research of the teacher-trainees. In doing so they present various methodologies of such research. They prove that not only the way of getting the empirical data is important, but also the focus of the analysis of raw material, the questions asked and the model(s) of interpretation used. Regardless of the methods used, the research results show that prospective history teachers represent rather traditional approaches to the past and to teaching history and their vision of the past in many cases seems to be no different from mainstream collective memory (or mythology). It opens broad perspectives for history didactics as an academic discipline. ** Mit der Bestellung eines Titels zur Fortsetzung erhalten Sie diesen Titel sowie alle künftigen Titel der entsprechenden Reihe direkt nach Erscheinen zugesandt.

Nostalgia in Historical Consciousness and Culture / Developing Creative Interactions of Local, National and Global Topics of History Education
International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics
The International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, And History Culture (JHEC) is the Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics. Its 2016 issue focuses on two main themes: Nostalgia in historical consciousness and culture and Developing creative interactions of local, national, and global topics of history education. The articles in both sections focus both on the theoretical concepts and on practical issues from various countries and research perspectives. The Forum section comes back to the themes of the past issues: colonialism and decolonization was the main topic of the Yearbook of 2014, while edutainment was discussed in 2015. The presentation of the use of mainstream historical films in the history classroom closes the volume.

History and Edutainment
International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, and History Culture. Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics
The 2015 issue of the Yearbook of the International Society for History Didactics appears under the new title: International Journal of Research on History Didactics, History Education, And History Culture (JHEC). Its leading theme is “History and Edutainment”, i.e. a combination of history education and entertainment. Starting from the ‘traditional’ educational media, such as books and periodicals, the authors move to museums, songs, board and video games, movies, television shows and finish with more general reflections on the benefits and drawbacks of incorporating edutainment into the practice of teaching history, for learners and for teachers. The volume can be regarded as a voice in a broader debate on the reaction of school education on edutainment, and more generally, on public history where entertainment is so popular. In the Varia section readers can find the second part of the text on colonisation and decolonisation as presented in Belgian history textbooks (part I was published in 2014) and a presentation of the book that analyses the results of the Bologna process.
