EHISTO (European history crossroads as pathways to intercultural and media education) deals with the mediation of history in popular (science) media and the question of social and political responsibility of journalists and other mediators of history, especially teachers, in the field of commercial presentation of history. The project responds to the increasing significance of a commercialised mediation of history within the public historical culture and reflects the fact that these representations, which not always meet the EU standards for history education, can have a lasting impact on the young generation’s understanding of history. Using the example of popular history magazines, the project shall, besides the necessary basic research, develop didactically reflected materials for history education in school as well as for initial and in-service teacher training, which shall on the one hand enable a media-critical examination of history magazines. On the other hand, by working with the history magazines, the project addresses itself to popular interpretations of history from the participating countries and reflects their similarities and differences in European cultures of remembrance.  Therefore, this approach not only trains media-critical competences but furthermore enables a multi-perspective and comparative access to history. The project EHISTO will last two years and is funded by the EU Lifelong Learning Programme with about 300,000 euros.  Partners from six European nations take part in the project.

El plan de trabajo es el siguiente:
Altogether, EHISTO has five main work phases that are structured in a coherent process:

Phase 1: Baseline study of the needs and best practice examples in schools concerning the intercultural and media analytical competences and recording the actual state of the required national market of popular history magazines to find some topics which are part of the magazines, the school syllabi and in the curricula of teacher trainings.
Phase 2: Development of teaching materials, focusing on media education and on multi-perspective oriented history teaching. At the same time, a module and a module guide for initial teacher training will be developed.
Phase 3: In terms of the results of phase 1 and 2, a course and a handbook for in-service teacher training will be developed.
Phase 4: The developed materials (teacher material and teacher manual, teacher module and guide for initial teacher training and the module for in-service teacher training) will be tested, evaluated and revised.
Phase 5: Documentation and publication of the EHISTO results.
