Inter- and transculturality in history education in Africa? Teaching about culture(s) and intercultural dynamics in deeply divided societies

How is identity constructed in history education in Africa, a highly diverse continent characterized by historical and incessant migrations and intercultural encounters? What kind of narratives and representations of the national past are presented in history curricula and textbooks to challenge conceptualizations of and approaches to culture(s) and intercultural dynamics, especially in deeply divided societies with a violent past? The lecture will highlight expressions of mono-, multi-, inter- and transcultural perspectives and explore attempts to depart from traditional nationalist models of history teaching and their inherent discourses around cultural homogeneity, diversity and otherness/alienation.
