Any attempt to improve history education depends on a sound knowledge of its current state as well as of possible alternatives. Aiming to broaden nationally limited educational discourse, this book brings together twelve perspectives on history education research from across Europe and America. With a focus on empirical research, each chapter outlines national as well as disciplinary traditions, discusses findings and methodology and generates perspectives for future research, thus allowing insight into remarkably rich and diverse academic traditions. Since the publication of the first edition of this book, empirical research on historical thinking and learning has intensified and diversified. Therefore, each chapter was revised and extensively updated for this second edition. In order to adequately reflect the ever-growing field of research, several authors chose to bring on a coauthor for the updated version of their paper. Additionally, a new introduction provides a comparative perspective on the chapters contained in this volume.
In 1999, in Bologna 29 Ministers of Sciences and Education signed a declaration wherein the standardization of the educational systems as well as the standardization of educational attainments in Europe were determined. Until today, the process of implementing the core requests of the Bologna Declaration is not yet finished in all parts of the Bologna area which currently includes 47 states. Therefore this volume collects the experiences made by the different participants in the Bologna process as well as by many other states. Experts from all over the world describe and analyse their experiences while implementing the ascertainment of the Bologna Declaration or while executing educational systems which include elements of the Bologna Declaration. In this way the anthology offers a valuable treasure of knowledge which can be helpful for realizing the goals for the Bologna Declaration regarding to history teacher education in Europe and in other parts of the globe.
