Abstract [en]

This special issue is the result of the workshop, Towards an integrated theory ofhistorical and moral consciousness, supported by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The SwedishFoundation for Humanities and Social Sciences) and Suomen kasvatuksen ja koulutuksen historianseura (The Finnish Society for the History of Education) and held at the University of Helsinki, in2015. History teaching and social studies education are increasingly expected to develop, amongother things, students’ historical consciousness. This goal is highly relevant for students’ ability todeal constructively with controversial issues of history which is an important civic competence inthe situation where in many societies’ political arguments concerning, for example, citizenshiprights, ethnic and cultural diversity, and democracy are only too often fuelled by simplistic narrativesof historical change and continuity. However, there is a blank spot in the existing research onhistorical consciousness in that intersections between historical and moral consciousness remainvery much unexplored. This special issue seeks to identify promising theoretical and conceptualpoints of convergence for future interdisciplinary studies of historical and moral consciousness.Contributors are from the fields of history, educational research, social psychology, and philosophy.
