A digital Jewish history?

Abstract

How can we teach Jewish history in a modern and effective way? In Hamburg, Germany, a school project called Geschichtomat tries to find an answer to that question. With the help of digital media, students explore their Jewish neighbourhood. This one-of-a-kind German program permits students to experience the Jewish past and present life in their hometown. During the project, students explore their neighbourhood to understand its historical figures, places, and events. This way they engage with Jewish life. Under the supervision of experts in the disciplines of history and media education, the students will: research, perform interviews with cultural authorities and contemporary witnesses, visit museums and archives, shoot and cut films, edit photos and write accompanying texts. Finally, their contributions are uploaded to the geschichtomat.de website. Little by little a digital map of Jewish life from the perspective of teenagers will take shape.

Pirate Television Stations in the Years 1990-1994

Abstract

The history of pirate, illegal television stations in Poland is presented here against the broader background of systemic transformations (both political and legal). According to the author of the article, it was an inevitable phenomenon, closely linked to the creation of the foundations of a democratic, lawful state with free-market economy. They were a factor which enforced acceleration of political change, legislative works and affected the change of the programming offer. Although pirate television stations were a short-lived phenomenon, they had huge impact on the later development of electronic media in Poland.

Digital artefacts to change the teacher’s practices

Abstract

The change imposed by the diffusion of information and communications technology concerns didactic transposition practices, especially in the context of ‘public subjects’, such as taught history, because their epistemological paradigms are also affected by the mediatization process which they are subjected to in the Web.

Digital competence is essential for building a meaningful curriculum of history, which could generate relevant knowledge for the contemporary world through digital artefacts that can start the change in didactic practices.

The traditional analogical supports, primarily the text books, could be overtaken by the aggregation of technological mediators. The digital mediators can make historical culture both evident and significant, and they can support the intellectual training that history asks of students.

Y-a-t-il une « école française de l’histoire culturelle » ? Retour sur les origines

Abstract

L’« école française d’histoire culturelle » adopte cette identification à partir des années 1980 mais elle est la résultante de plusieurs démarches qui ont renouvelé un vieux projet remontant aux Lumières, françaises puis allemandes : une démarche d’histoire sociale, née d’une évolution critique de la doxa marxiste, une démarche d’histoire politique, née d’une évolution critique des grilles de lecture libérales, enfin, et surtout, une démarche d’anthropologie historique, née d’une évolution critique des hypothèses économistes du groupe dominant de l’École des Annales. La particularité française, qui s’était exprimée après la Seconde guerre mondiale dans le vocable de « mentalités », a, en récupérant le concept de culture, paradoxalement facilité la réintégration de cette école dans un mouvement international.
