(English)In: Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, ISSN 2041-6938, E-ISSN 2041-6946Article in journal (Refereed) Accepted
How do two Swedish lower secondary school teachers relate to and make sense of history via their experiences and educational media? The study seeks to gain knowledge about history education by analyzing two teachers’ narratives of their personal experiences of the Cold War and classroom observations of the teachers in practice. The study finds that the teachers’ narrations of personal experiences and observed teaching of the Cold War resemble the dominant historical culture on the Cold War in Swedish education. On the basis of these results, the author discusses the importance of a critical awareness of historical culture in order to further a complex understanding of history.
