Pan-European talkshop opens

6th September 1996 at 01:00
Schools across Europe are being invited to take part in a computer-mediated conference on modern history topics.

In previous years 16-18 year-old students taking part have sent in contributions to discussions by e-mail, using languages like English, French and German, to discuss topics such as the origins of the First World War, the Russian Revolution and the Stalinist period and the nature of National Socialism. For each topic an expert historian is drawn into the discussion to react by e-mail to the views expressed by different students and give advice for further study.

The aim is to raise awareness of different views between several nationalities about the same topic and improve mutual understand- ing among European students.

The next discussion, organised by EuroClio, the European Standing Conference of History Teacher Associations, will run from October to next June, on Campusworld, which requires payment of a subscription. E-mail Dr Roger Austin on RSP.Austin@ulst.ac.uk by the end of September with a suggested 20th-century topic.
