Uciszanie przeszłości dla teraźniejszości. Strategie i techniki szkolnej edukacji historycznej
Silencing the Past for the Present, Strategies and Techniques of Historical Education in Schools
Languages of publication
The article discusses the coexistence of three types of historical narratives – academic, everyday and educational – that create the basic context for establishing a synthesis of national history in how the recent past is being taught today both in Poland and in other European countries. This specific conglomerate, a mix of different types of narratives that expose the logic of history, that has a common source – mythology. At the same time, it lies at the foundation of the titular problem of "silencing the past" for the needs of contemporary discourses, as well as "historical bulimia", understood as a surplus representation of preferred visions of history that are structured according to a mythically-understood and unconditional initial situation.
