Historical Culture in Divided Societies: From Theory to Practice


In December 2014, the Association for Historical Dialogue & Research (AHDR) hosted an International Conference entitled "Historical Culture in Divided Societies. From Theory to Practice" at the Home for Cooperation, as a part of its 'Home for Cooperation', Noway Grants 2009-2014 project. 


The 3-day conference was organised in cooperation with the International Commission for the History and Theory of Historiography (ICHTH) and aimed at opening up a dialogue between academic scholars and public history practitioners regarding history education and conflict and divided societies, seeking to bridge the gap between theory and practice. 


The conference gathered a wide range of participants from Cyprus, Germany, Israel, Holland, Greece, Turkey, Belgium and the USA with an equally wide range of experiences, background and practices. Below you can find links to the presentations of the majority of speakers, in order of appearance.
