During the EUSTORY Network’s first virtual annual meeting, EUSTORY Competition Organisers not only shared digital innovations from their national projects but also focused on (post)colonial monuments that polarise.
At this year's network meeting in Málaga, hosted by the Spanish foundation Real Maestranza de Caballería de Ronda (RMR), the focus was on dealing with the legacy of the Franco dictatorship. The conference programme was developed together with Körber-Stiftung.
The Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid, patron of the Estonian national history competition, received representatives of the EUSTORY Network. The Estonian history competition, one of the founding members of EUSTORY, kindly hosted this year’s Annual Network Meeting in Tallinn together with Körber-Stiftung.
Which competences do young Europeans need to research historical sources and information for historical projects on the internet? And how does the role of archives change in the progressing digitalisation? During this year’s EUSTORY-Network meeting, which took place from 22 - 25 March 2018 in Turin and was hosted by the Fondazione per la Scuola, the organisers from more than 20 national history competitions discussed these questions and the relevance of archives for their work.
During this year’s EUSTORY Annual Network Meeting, representatives from 19 national EUSTORY competitions discussed experiences from and strategies for political-historical education in the light of current Europe-wide trends of renationalisation and digitalisation. Their aim is to ensure a stable perspective for historical research competitions through steady participation of students and teachers. Best-practise for didactical and methodological support, effective jury work and the integration of new media formats were presented and exchanged during the workshop sessions.
From 27 April to 1 May, EUSTORY competition organisers gathered in Moscow for their Annual Network Meeting. The conference was hosted by The MEMORIAL Society Moscow, a non-governmental organisation focusing on history, education and human rights, and coordinator of the Russian history competition. Representatives from more than 20 EUSTORY member countries discussed the potential of different reference points for historical analysis and education in the EUSTORY history competitions throughout Europe.
