Lear­ning Each Other‘s His­to­ri­cal Narrative
An inno­va­ti­ve form of peace-pro­mo­ting histo­ry tea­ching and its back­ground con­di­ti­ons in con­flic­ting societies

Sami Adwan, Prof. of Edu­ca­ti­on in Beth­le­hem, is co-initia­tor (tog­e­ther with the late with Dan Bar-On) and co-direc­tor of PRIME, the Peace-Rese­arch Insti­tu­te for the Midd­le East in Tali­tha Kumi. In this func­tion, he initia­ted a pro­ject for pro­mo­ting a cul­tu­re of mutu­al under­stan­ding among Jewish Israe­li and Pal­es­ti­ni­an Stu­dents using a histo­ry text­book pre­sen­ting the histo­ry of their socie­ties‘ con­flict in two con­tras­ting nar­ra­ti­ves (Lear­ning each other‘s his­to­ri­cal nar­ra­ti­ve; 3 volu­mes). This pro­ject makes use of prin­ci­ples which cor­re­la­te with stan­dard prin­ci­ples of histo­ry tea­ching, theo­re­ti­cal­ly che­ris­hed in Ger­man histo­ry didac­tics, howe­ver not ful­ly imple­men­ted in tea­ching mate­ri­als so far (mul­ti­per­spec­ti­vi­ty, con­tro­ver­si­al­ty, ori­en­ta­ti­on on nar­ra­ti­ves rather than only on pri­ma­ry sources). Prof. Adwan will give a pre­sen­ta­ti­on about the idea of, the con­cept for and the expe­ri­en­ces with this project.

Shif­ra Sagy, Prof. of Psy­cho­lo­gy, has under­ta­ken empi­ri­cal rese­arch about the per­cep­ti­on of the mutu­al con­flict among Jewish and Arab Israe­li stu­dents in a lon­gi­tu­di­nal stu­dy. She will pre­sent her results and dis­cuss them with spe­cial regard to effects of the the chan­ging poli­ti­cal situa­ti­on onto both the per­cep­ti­on and inter­pre­ta­ti­on both of the past and on the atti­tu­des towards the other.
