Workshop: Missing Persons

AHDR Supplementary Material Monthly Workshops for Educators


'Thinking Historically about Missing Persons: A Guide for Teachers'

Workshop with Alev Tugberk and Lukas Perikleous


The aim of the educational pack is to introduce the complex and highly sensitive topic of the missing persons to the classroom in a way which provides opportunities to explore the issue in its human, social and political dimensions and contributes to the development of students’ historical thinking. Learning to think historically is fundamentally necessary to cultivating a disciplined and rigorous approach to teaching and learning about the past. Learning to understand history cannot simply mean possessing knowledge about the past, but must also involve understanding the processes of historical enquiry that generate this knowledge and that give it whatever authority and credibility it has. Developing understanding of history as process can also help students appreciate the nature and limits of historical knowledge and also empower them to be able to detect and critique ideological myths masquerading as historical claims. Developing these understandings involves developing our students’ understanding of disciplinary concepts of history, their grasp of historical enquiry and their understanding of the dispositions associated with the disciplined exploration of the past.[i]
