Empathy, History and Citizenship Education. Conflicts among Own Identity and the Representation of the Other

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

One of the main causes of global conflicts is the exclusion and misunderstanding of the Other within the discourses and narratives of local and national identities. In order to change this, can History -one of the core basis of Identity in past centuries- support the global education of the new citizens, and the cultural recognition embedded on it? It can be assumed that students´ historical conceptions determine in certain ways their identities. In this order of ideas, present study aims to examine students´ historical representations, enabling analysis of Historical Understanding, Social Perspective Taking and Identity construction. Also, this inquiry aims to understand the ways in which students represents the Other and how they put themselves into another one´s realities, reasoning and emotions, from peers, society, to people of all cultures, as well as the distant past, shared with another countries. Outcomes of qualitative analyzes are presented, based on interviews to fourteen and sixteen Spaniards and Mexicans students about the Conquest of Mexico. The implications for global citizenship education are considered, as are also theoretical considerations of cross-cultural inquiry, on the idea of contributing to the promotion of dialogue and understanding between cultures.
