What young people do and do not know about the past is frequently discussed in news media and in political debate and it has become almost a truism to claim that young people know little or nothing about history.
This seminar will explore what young people know about the past and the sources of their knowledge from an international perspective. Drawing on research from Quebec, Amsterdam and Ottawa, the seminar will reflect on the nature, form and sources of young people's thinking about the past and aim to challenge the clichéd practice of itemising and lamenting 'the ignorance of the young'.
