Title History Textbooks in the Balkans: Representations and Conflict
Author(s) Dutceac Segesten, Anamaria
Date 2008
Editor(s) Lindbladh, Johanna
English abstract
The present paper proposes to examine the political use of history as it is reflected in the history textbooks of two Balkan countries, Romania and Serbia, and to discover what types of historical knowledge the local people have about themselves and their neighbours. This research paper explores the representations of the in- and out-groups as they appear in history textbooks and tries to establish a link between these representations and the potential for interethnic violence.
