CALL FOR PAPERS: Studia Historica Gedanensia, Vol. X, 2019 Teaching – Educating – Upbringing. Historical Instruction at Schools and Universities.

Historical education, in broad interpretation, encompasses the phenomena and the processes related to society's absorption of historical knowledge. Despite its complexity, multifaceted manifestations in various aspects of life it is most commonly associated with traditional forms of knowledge transmission exemplified by the school system.

It was precisely on the school grounds that overtime historical instruction evolved from a supporting discipline to a separate subject bringing with it didactic self-reliance. In the 19th and 20th centuries history was taught universally across modern societies, with varied purposes – from cognitive to ideological. This process, fostered by manifold contexts and emerging in diversified conditions, uncovers many areas for historical and educational research.
