This course approaches issues related to the management of traumatic and controversial events of Greek, European and World History of the 20th century, focusing, among else, on topics such as the “Asia Minor Catastrophe” (1922), the Greek Civil War (1946-49), the understanding of Nazism and the Holocaust in Germany, the trauma of the Civil War in contemporary Spain, the handling of sensitive issues of the past in Poland, the symbolic wars in the USA, the controversy between Japan and China concerning the Nanking Massacre exc. The course has two aims: a) to create a multi-level, interdisciplinary methodological and notional framework, which could be applied in the fields of both Public History and academic historiography and b) to familiarize students with methods and practices for the teaching of sensitive and controversial issues in school History.
