Historiography, Excursion Pedagogy and Holocaust Memorial Sites (PDG692), 7.5 credits
The Segerstedt Institute collaborates with the Department of Education, Communication, and Learning (IPKL) and with the Living History Forum in the course PDG692 Historiography, excursion pedagogy, and Holocaust memorial sites.
The course is given in Swedish.
The course is aimed at educators and others who work with young people and deals with historiographical work around the Holocaust. In addition, the course focuses on the development of excursion pedagogy and didactics to lead trips to the Holocaust memorial sites. One of the starting points for the course is to create historiographical pedagogical tools to increase children’s and young people’s awareness and understanding of history and of their own time and aspects of meeting racist, antisemitic, and historical revisionist expressions, as well as critically studying issues related to democracy, tolerance, antisemitism, and extremism. The course also touches on the cultural theoretical perspective on the presence and absence of Yiddish culture in Europe.
Parts of the course are conducted as excursions in Poland.
