Abstract

History is intimately connected with personal and collective processes of becoming. It is also a field of contest among curriculum-makers, teachers, parents and scholars over who and what children will be; and this contest has greater consequences as our world grows more crowded and more connected. School curriculum-makers and teachers have never had a monopoly on what children learned about the past; but today, the Internet makes encounters with differing historical narratives ever more common. In this symposium, scholars from three countries (Israel, Canada and the United States) will come together around a collection of unique studies addressing the question of how teachers can be better prepared to help their students navigate the increasing challenges of learning and becoming in today's increasingly globalized and internetworked world.
